Back in 2009, Lil Wayne and Drake took their business relationship to the next level when he signed to Young Money. This signing would help turn Cash Money Records into the biggest force in the rap game. Within a year, Drake became one of the biggest rappers in the game, as his album would be a platinum.
Drake would release his Thank Me Later album during the summer of 2010. On the album, Drake would sample Aaliyah. During the promotion of the album, Drake revealed he loved Aaliyah’s music and mourned her death. Continuing to discuss Aaliyah, Drake admitted he grew up having the biggest crush on the deceased singer.
In 2012, Drake announced he would be the executive producer of Aaliyah’s new album, posthumously released. DMX, a personal friend of Aaliyah, took offense to Drake producing the album. The veteran Yonkers rapper made it clear he does not like Drake. Lil Wayne recently spoke on the album and said the music is timeless.
