Lil Wayne throws some serious shade at Drake

17 September 2015, 10:05

Los Angeles - Lil Wayne thinks he's a better rapper than Drake.

The Lollipop hitmaker claims he is responsible for the success of the Take Care star by giving him a platform for his music, when he signed him to his label Young Money Entertainment in 2009 and helped launch his career, but admitted he isn't worried he will out shine him because he is still the better hip hop artist.

Asked who is the better rap star he said: "I annihilate that guy. I don't feel like I be deserving anything from him. Only thing I did was put him on a good platform.

"I discovered Drake. He left everything behind. At the time he was singing and rapping. His image was the Drake we know now, he never changed his image. But back then it wasn't accepted too well. Singing and rapping at the same time. He was getting shunned by a lot of people. He was getting rejected."

The 32-year-old star advised Drake not to "change anything" and to rap about whatever he wants and not to try and be like him and be true to his Canadian self.

He told ESPN Radio podcast Giving Major Prop: "I was the one to tell him, don't change anything. Don't think 'cos you're coming over here by me you gotta start rapping bout the things I rap about. Please rap about your little TV show, whatever you wanna rap about, rap about girls, do that. That's what you're good at."

He added: "It's only natural for you to come over and just think, if I'm wit Wayne, I gonna rock like Wayne. Don't change anything. Don't start singing about killing nobody, don't start singing about the streets. Keep it Canadian man."
