There's a lot of people that wouldn't be here today if it weren't for Lil Wayne. Regardless of how you feel about the man, his life has been dedicated to rap and influenced generations of rappers. Drake, for instance, makes it known whenever possible that he wouldn't be where he is today if it weren't for Lil Wayne.

Drake hit the 'Gram today where he showed major love to Lil Wayne on his 38th birthday with a heartfelt post. With a slew of photos of the two, including screencaps from the "HYFR" video and Drizzy's impression of Wayne on SNL, Drake made sure to acknowledge give credit where credit's due.

"More life to the man that gave me everything I have!!! My GOAT and not just on some emoji shit," Drake declared. He brought it back to the days of Tha Carter II by penning some of Wayne's most iconic bars to sign off. "Sometimes I wanna drop a tear but no emotions from a king...shall I be...who I be...that’s me...that’s Weezy F Baby and please say the mothafuckin..."

Though there's always love between Drizzy and Wayne, we didn't get any collabs from the two on Tha Carter V. However, it was recently revealed that there were discussions of another co-headlining tour that would serve as a sequel to their 2014 co-headlining Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour. And while that won't be happening any time soon, it would be dope to see the mentor and protege hit the road together again once the pandemic comes to an end.
