Recently, Lil Wayne began his Welcome To Tha Carter Tour, and along with the voyage were many unexpected visitors who supported the Hip-Hop Bigname.

Then Fans in Toronto were treated to a rare sight at his performance on April 12. It turns out that Wayne had asked a Torontonian to perform as his opening act. So Drake entered the stage without fanfare or preparation and started singing one of his classics. When they recognized the rapper, his fellow Torontonians erupted in jubilation. Thousands of phones were brought out to record the spectacle. Fans were thrilled as they leaped up and down. It’s unusual to see Drake up close, especially as an opener.

There is a lengthy and illustrious history between Drake and Wayne. After all, Wayne was the one who brought Drake to Young Money in 2009. It isn’t easy to realize that the Multi-Grammy winner and rapper Drake was once merely an actor in a teen drama. Drake has been a rapper for almost ten years and is now recognized as iconic. Lil Wayne and Young Money, who signed Nicki Minaj at the start of her career, are to blame for much of that. Whatever you want to say about Wayne. Some of history’s most well-known painters are a result of him. In addition, he is regarded as a legend in the field.

During the Recording Academy Honors, Drake sent Wayne a video message earlier this year. He was overflowing with gratitude and lovely words. Drake stated:

“Lil Wayne… I love you so much. I know I probably get annoying with saying how much you mean to my family and me,” “But I think I speak on behalf of everybody when I say that our careers, our cadences, our melodies, maybe our face tats or our outfits or our decisions, in general, would not have been the same without your natural gift just to be yourself.”
