Drake Shows Up Surprisingly At Lil Wayne’s Lil Weezyana Fest
Lil Wayne traveled back to New Orleans for his sixth annual Lil Weezyana Fest, which had been postponed from August. But Wayne delivered a two-hour concert that included a surprise visit from Drake, making the wait worthwhile.
Drake opened his 18-minute concert with “She Will,” a 2011 Weezy collaboration. Before moving on to his solo singles like “God’s Plan,” “In My Feelings,” “Nonstop,” and “Jimmy Cooks,” he followed with “The Motto.”
He paid respect to the “GOAT” who put him on and to New Orleans. It’s a privilege to be back in one of the few cities that had a significant impact on my artistic career, he remarked. “I don’t think I would ever be where I was without New Orleans and I definitely know I would not be anywhere in this fu**ing life without the greatest rap artist of all time that’s right there on stage behind me,” the performer said.
Additionally, he recalled playing Bobby Valentino’s role on “Mrs. Officer” when touring with Wayne. He concluded by singing an acapella version of a Tha Carter III song. Drake, who portrayed Jimmy Brooks on “Degrassi,” recalled that Lil Wayne used to ask him on stage to sing Bobby’s portion and refer to him as Jimmy Valentino. It is just as it was in the past.
He made sure to give his mentor one last act of affection before departing. “Thank you, my brother, Lil Wayne. I am at a loss for words with you. You have my utmost love.
