Drake Dispels YMCMB Tension, Calls Lil Wayne "Best Rapper Alive"

Drake says "Young Money is forever." The Canadian rapper also says Lil Wayne "is the reason for Drake."

Drake addressed rumors of tension between him and Young Money yesterday (August 6).

"If there was paperwork...if I could write that shit in blood, I would," Drake told the OVO Fest crowd in Toronto's Molson Canadian Amphitheatre. "Young Money is forever. Lil Wayne is forever. This man here is the reason you can feel proud as a city. This man right here is the reason for Drake. Make some noise for the best rapper alive."

Lil Wayne spoke about the event. "I'm glad to be a piece of this puzzle," Wayne said to the crowd. 

At another point in the show, Drake rapped a variation of Kanye West's lyrics on "Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Remix)." "Yo, where Wayne at?" Drake said. "Nigga, we both busy. I ain't gotta explain that."  

This comes after rumors concerning tension within the Young Money camp began circulating. In a report published last week, Nicki Minaj addressed the perceived tension between Drake and YMCMB

"Peoples' perception of their reality is their perception of their reality," Minaj said, when asked about Drake's status with the camp. "Sometimes people make moves based on their perception of what reality is. I know that sounds like a riddle, but maybe one day you'll be able to unravel that one. All I can say is this, Lil Wayne is everything to me. I can't speak for anyone else. What Young Money and Cash Money did for Nicki Minaj, I can never repay them for. So, I am forever indebted to them. Whatever happens with any other artist, I don't know.

"[Drake's] so talented," she continued. "Sometimes, we've seen this. Sometimes when you're really intelligent and you're really talented, you also think a lot. Sometimes your mind is racing with thoughts. It is what it is. People go through their own motions and you've gotta respect it and keep it moving. We all love the team. We all love Wayne. That's what's gonna always hold us together. Drake is my baby because that's how it was when we came in. So whenever I think of him, 'That's my baby.' Whatever is going on now, obviously we're all very busy and you know, shit happens. It gets a little hard to have a real connection when people are on different sides of the world, working on different things. You just never know who people got in their ear or what they're feeling or maybe they felt wronged in some way. I don't know. I just know that Drake is my baby and Wayne is my everything." 

During his performance at OVO Fest 2013, Lil Wayne was accompanied by YMCMB president Mack Maine. Other stars also performed with Drake at the event, including Kanye West, Diddy, Ma$e and several other guests

    I want to know the truth....back when lil wayne started buzzing..with them drought mixtapes....A rapper from gillie tha kid was signed to cash money. Gillie basically taught Lil wayne how to flow,, lil waynes lyrics improved while gillie was that....his whole style and tone of voice he got from gillie. That catupulted lil wayne as a lyrical force to deal with. But of course him and Gillie fell out...and Gillie exposed that he was ghost wrting and for wayne and gave him his style. So of course wayne overtime had to change his style up and distance himself from gillie's.....thats the wayne you hear today...thats why it seems he fell off...Well he did...in the terms of rapping. The wayne you hear today is the wayne you would have heard back when he was flooding the streets with mixtapes.....he would not have been as big as he is today......if you don't believe me..youtube gillie that kid...and listen to him....he sounds like wayne did when wayne was flooding the streets with mixtapes......

  • d-nucks

    lil waynes not even the best rapper in YMCMB,, i'm not a fan of drake..but i can say he rap better than lil wayne.

    LMFAO @ A lot of these fools. The top 5 greatest rappers OF ALL TIME [OR] ALIVE [DO NOT] INCLUDE ANYBODY from Cash Money or YMCMB - or any type of Trap Garbage Gucci B.S.. Neither does the Top 10. Probably not even the Top 20 - 50. It's not about how many records can be sold by washed up little gang bangers loving the beats and not paying attention to the whack lyrics. And it's definitely not based upon what children are blurting out as fact as their opinion on social media. Get real.

  • dentaldamboy

    Wayne is the best rapper alive. Preach.

  • dentaldamboy

    Drake is not leaving ymcmb. Drake would never have bought lil wayne to ovo fest if he didn't like him. This rumor was started by haters of ymcmb. Stop hating.

    Lil Wayne wouldn't be the best rapper alive under ANY circumstance, even if all other rappers were dead. Even if no other rappers were ever thought of. Stop kissing Baby in the lips! Makes you look gay...

    Drake knows hes lying. But i understand him having to praise the person that signed him.

  • Anonymous

    Best rapper alive? Apparently Drake knows nothing about hip-hop. I wouldn't even put him in my top 50, let alone the best. He has occasional good tracks among what is mostly garbage. The only thing that carries him is the dope production

  • drake runs rap

    drake gotta give the legend weezy props. Weezy was the best rapper alive now hes the greatest legend but drake is the current best rapper alive salute weezy tho
