Lil Wayne isn’t old and cold in the grave, but at 36 his legacy is staggering. The Louisiana rapper has apparently influenced many rappers – many peopl – and they only too glad to admit his influences and share some of his music they love.
This much became apparent when Drake shared a video of his new YoungMoney chain on Instagram and asked fans to drop their favourite Lil Wayne song in the comments.
It turned out the ordinary peeps are not the only ones with Weezy favourites. Celebs joined the thread, commenting on the songs from Weezy that have charmed them so far.
“Good Day” singer Coi Leray would pick “Comfortable” as her favourite Weezy number till date. Illega Civ would tap “Single” as the song, while the Australian basketball player Elizabeth Liz Cambage said “Lollipop.”
Father had trouble making up his mind which song, so he offered between “Best of Me Freestyle” and “Hustler Musik.” Incidentally, “Hustler Musik” is the choice of Velous and several other respondents as well.
J Cole and Tyga were on the thread as well and commented also about their favourites.
Of all Weezy‘s releases so far, Tyga picked “Face Off,” Weezy‘s collaborative single with Juelz Santana, as his fave.
Tyga‘s choice deferred markedly from J Cole‘s. J Cole quoted some bars that are probably from Weezy‘s single “Dedication,” implying the song is his pick.
That supposedly innocent request for faves by Drake, who himself is celebrating Weezy, has made apparent, once again, Weezy‘s appeal as a musician. His appeal cuts across social and intellectual boundaries.
