Drake pays homage to Lil Wayne in a major way when he gets a full tattoo of the Young Money rapper on his arm.
Lil Wayne is credited as the man who brought Drake and Nicki Minaj to the forefront of hip hop when he signed them to Young Money/Cash Money Records back in 2009. Both rappers have since gone on to become two of the biggest artists on the planet with millions of records sold worldwide. Drake often shows Weezy his appreciation with lavish gifts and a lot of praises on stage, but this is his biggest gesture yet.
The 6 God debut the new Lil Wayne tattoo on his left arm last night on his Instagram page. He also has a Hotskull Unruly tattoo on the same arm as an homage to his close friend Popcaan. Directly above the Lil Wayne tat is a Drakkar Noir bottle tattoo. The photo of Drake was taken at his Houston Appreciation Week celebration in Houston. As part of the celebration, he hosted a retirement party for three of his favorite strippers last weekend.
Drake also has a tattoo of Aaliyah and two tats of Sade that he got while on tour in Europe earlier this year.

The 6 God didn’t just throw a lavish party for Lira Galore, Miracle Watts, and Maliah Michel, he also showered them with some expensive gifts from Louis Vuitton. Drake has been hosting a lot of big events this year including the annual NBA Awards and now this party for these three ladies as part of his Houston Appreciation Week.
In the below video you can see Watts, Galore, and Michel’s jerseys hanging up in the club as Drake retires them with a bang. At least one of these ladies say they will not retire anytime soon. Maliah took to her social media pages to respond to the news telling her fans that no man can tell her when to retire. “Contrary to “social media news” no man can retire me. I’m shaking this azz into a wheel chair. Maliah will retire Maliah #MaliahMondays,” she said.
“Look, I don’t dance now, I make Money moves,” Miracle Watts wrote on Instagram. “Thanks @champagnepapi for helping me gracefully ‘HANG UP MY JERSEY’ OFFICIALLY! 3 years ago, I made a decision to leave the pole in my past, & I never looked back. I’m blessed and thankful to be a part. #MotivateTheStrippers #HoustonMade.”
