Drake might not have had problems releasing his VIEWS album through Cash Money Records, but he has chosen to support Lil Wayne in his battle against Birdman as his mentor seeks to release his own music.

Drizzy took to Instagram after Lil Wayne made a post on Twitter that caused the Internet to worry if Weezy F. Baby was retiring or even committing suicide. Drake expresses his gratitude for the New Orleans rapper’s support in his career and says he stands in solidarity with Wayne.

Lil Wayne has been beefing with Birdman since December 2014 when he said he wanted off Cash Money because the label was holding Tha Carter V. He has put his former father figure on blast publicly multiple times and has an ongoing $51 million lawsuit against him. During a concert in May, Wayne dropped another Birdman diss and said he has two albums ready for release.

Drake signed to Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment in 2009. He has been the subject of another legal battle when Jas Prince demanded royalties from Cash Money for his work to bring the Toronto rapper to Birdman. The two parties settled after a drawn out process where Prince was demanding $11 milion.
