Although Drake continues to build his rep, he says the one person he seeks advice from is Lil Wayne, the head of his Young Money crew.
[watch here] "Wayne is another one that — rap-wise, verse-wise — was my favorite,” he said. “And to be under his wing, to be able to interact with him on a daily basis and talk to him and get information from him — I’m in a blessed position. I have the greatest mentors, the greatest teachers in the world. They all have gradually started to embrace me more and more, so it’s a great feeling.”
