Missy Elliott and Lil Wayne have been giving each other their flowers a lot as of late, and Tunechi just upped the ante with a special gift.
On Friday (May 26), the Virginia native took to Twitter to share photos of the extremely thoughtful present Wayne got her – a custom raincoat with a matching umbrella paying homage to Missy’s 1997 hit, “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly).”
“@LilTunechi again I Thank you for the Amazing coat that you had made for me (purple my favorite color) & you even got me the umbrella that say ‘I Can’t Stand The Rain’ on it!” Missy wrote. :It spell it out on the umbrella when it rains. I truly appreciate you.”

Back in November, Weezy surprised Missy by pulling up to her wax figure’s unveiling at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas. The “Work It” rapper returned the favor by showering Weezy with love and credited him with “birthing a whole generation” of rappers after him.
“@LilTunechi You have Birthed a whole generation after you & Its easy for people to acknowledge Some1’s GREATNESS when their no longer around but I want you to know YOU ARE LEGENDARY,” she wrote to Twitter. “No matter who thinks differently YOUR BLUEPRINT is PRESENT! No debate.”
She added: “Sometimes it’s hard to run into a real one in this business but when you do DON’T LET THEM GO A huge hug will let them know you appreciate them & their contributions to the CULTURE! Thank You @LilTunechi.”
Lil Wayne named Missy in the No. 1 slot of his top five rappers when rattling off his list on the What’s Wright? With Nick Wright podcast last May.
“It’s always gonna be first Missy Elliott,” he said. “She’s a huge influence of everything I’ve ever done. JAY-Z is the best ever to speak. Biggie, obviously. Then I have the whole Goodie Mob. Then I have UGK.”
Weezy has also previously credited Missy with inspiring him to start using ad-libs on tracks.
