Lil Wayne appeared on the Be Honest podcast with ESPN’s Cari Champion and details what he told to Drake upon signing him to his Young Money label.

“I was the one to tell him, ‘Don’t change anything,'” Lil Wayne says per HotNewHipHop. “Don’t think ’cause you’re coming over here over by me that you gotta rap about the things I rap about.”

Before becoming a rapper, Drake appeared on the MTV show Degrassi and when he did start rhyming, he rapped about wooing women, not the street topics that his mentor is known for.

“Please rap about your little TV show,” Lil Wayne remembers telling him. “Rap about girls ’cause that’s what you’re good at… Don’t start singing about killin’ nobody. Don’t start singing about the streets. Keep it Canadian.”
