Drake, Chris Brown comfort ‘depressed’ rap icon Lil’ Wayne

/ 11:18 AM September 06, 2016

Lil’ Wayne is not yet “taking a bow” from the music industry.

The 33-year-old rapper posted two tweets on Saturday, sparking rumors about his retirement. Recently he was burdened with severe health issues and financial restraints brought by his record label company, Young Money.


Chris Brown and Drake, two of his close mentees, rushed to his aid on social media. On Monday, Drake posted a sweet tribute to the “defeated” rapper on his Instagram account. “I know you gave me a shot and all I can ever do with the rest of my life is return the favor,” he said.

The boss @liltunechi. We are fighting until you get yours. Freedom to drop music and peace of mind. I don't know what these other weirdos are on with all the side talks but I know you gave me a shot and all I can ever do with the rest of my life is return the favor. YOUNG MONEY FOREVER

On the other hand, Chris Brown, who happens to be vying for his ex-girlfriend and now Drake’s “princess” Rihanna, posted another empowering tribute to his Instagram account.

“This man helped my career in so many ways and has inspired me to live life,” he said.

According to E! News, Wayne was is “nearly giving up” due to his agonizing problems.

“His love is music. He is just fed up with the game,” the insider told E! News, adding, “He needed to vent like rappers do without thinking. He has no filter. He wants to make new music and will soon enough.” Wayne, who recently released his fifth studio album “Free Weezy Album,” last July is fidgety to produce more rap hits soon.

The “Sucker For Pain” singer suffered seizures after drinking three bottles of codeine in June. Again, he ended up in the hospital in July after another seizure struck him before his concert in Las Vegas.  Gianna Francesca Catolico
