Lil Wayne recently held a Q&A on Twitter in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of his sixth studio album Tha Carter IV and admitted that Drake is the one person who pushes him to rework verses.

Dubbed as the “Ask Wayne” session, a fan asked the Louisiana rapper if he ever received a verse that was so good which made him want to go back and tweak his own. Wayne instantly indicated that it has always his protégé who never fails to make him go back and change his verse “a billion times” before making the final cut.

“The answer is the same person every time and that person is Drake,” answered Wayne. “Everything Drake sent back, I always have to go back and [redo].”

“It’s always because he says something in there that make me be like, ‘Oh, I could make more of the song and capitalize more of the song off of something that he just said and that I didn’t say’,” he expounded.

With Drizzy Drake’s upcoming Certified Lover Boy album dropping soon, Weezy may have hinted at a collaboration between the two which might be part of the release as he tagged #CLB in his tweet.

Elsewhere in music, Baby Keem has confirmed that he just turned in his new album The Melodic Blue which contains features from Travis Scott and Kendrick Lamar.
