Drake recently sat down with CNN to talk about his locked up boss Lil Wayne saying he's innocent. Drake says that they used Lil Wayne as a scapegoat for the criminal system. "One of my biggest influences ended up being a close friend of mine, Jay-Z and Lil Wayne who is actually responsible for my career has always been a huge influence to me and one of my heroes," Drake said in an interview. "I've talked to Wayne since he's been in jail. In my opinion, he didn't do anything wrong. I think that was the opportunity to make an example of somebody who didn't deserve to be made an example out of."
