While the entire hip-hop world has wished Lil Wayne happy birthday on Tuesday, Drake took some time out of his day to send a very special message to his Young Money boss. In an Instagram post, Drake not only wished Wayne happy birthday, but also thanked him for believing in him and the rest of the Young Money label.
“YM we still alive free #C5,” Drake wrote on the post before tagging Nicki Minaj, Mack Maine, Gudda Gudda, Lil Twist, and Wayne’s longtime manager Cortez Bryant in the caption.
Everything I got is because of god and you. Happy birthday to my brother. Thanks for believing in all of us when you didn’t have to. YM we still alive Free C5.
It comes as a bit of a surprise that Drake tagged Nicki in the post. Even though she’s on Young Money, she’s been caught in the middle of the Drizzy and Meek Mill beef for more than a year and hasn’t publicly associated herself with Drake.
Still, Drizzy made it clear where his allegiance lies in the ongoing Birdman and Lil Wayne legal drama on Tuesday night, which backs up his actions from a concert in Houston earlier this month when Wayne yelled “Fuck Cash Money” while onstage with Drake.
As of now, there has been no progress made between Wayne and Birdman, but the latest development came when a judge recently ruled that Birdman must provide details on how Weezy’s Young Money label advance was spent. Wayne accused Baby of spending more than half of it and didn’t spread out the funds fairly. While it’s unclear how this drama will play out down the road, Drake is certainly making it clear who he is riding with throughout.
