Lil Wayne Gets a Custom OVO 6 Chain Made for Drake

Lil Wayne gifts his protege with a custom chain.

After releasing Tha Carter V last October, Weezy is one of the happiest rappers alive. The project was put on hold for a number of years but was finally released on the latter part of 2018. Although it was long overdue, it was well received by fans.

The “Uproar” rap legend signed Drake to Young Money back in 2009. Since then the Young Money roster has had a decade worth of success with Drizzy, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga. While Drake and Nicki have been the biggest Young Money artist over the last 10 years, Tyga’s 2018 comeback puts him back in the conversation of successful Weezy proteges.

To start the year, Wayne is in a gift-giving mood. Drake is known as the 6 God, stemming from his hometown Toronto. Lil Wayne went to popular jeweler Elliot to get Drake a new custom “6” chain. As you can imagine, the chain is dripped in diamonds. In addition to the new chain, Drizzy recently signed a residency deal for $10 million in Las Vegas.

Elliot is a popular jeweler to all the biggest stars in the game such as Offset, Future and more. His popular hashtag #ShouldaWentToElliot is a testament to his reputation. We can’t wait to see the “Nonstop” superstar sport his new gift. Peep the custom made piece below.

‘Tha Carter V’ and ‘Queen’ Certified Platinum on Same Day

Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj prove that Young Money/Cash Money Business is still alive and well. The Cash Money business side has been settled for Wayne making 2018 indeed a winning year.

Young Money’s first lady Nicki Minaj came out strong with the release of Queen and then we finally received Tha Carter V a month later. Perhaps two of the most highly anticipated albums of 2018s have added another platinum album to the artist’s laundry list of accomplishments. Making the feat all the more special, both albums were certified platinum by the RIAA on Friday, January 11, 2018.

A lucrative coincidence, to say the least, the Young Money year was kicked off with Drake’s uber-successful Scorpion album.

It is refreshing to see Lil Wayne return to the top of the Billboard charts. In fact, Tha Carter V  marks his fourth album to top the Billboard 200 chart.

Furthermore, its safe to say that his fallout with Birdman helped fuel the demand for his album. On-demand streams propelled the album to the third biggest album sales week of 2018. The high demand was reflected in the first week as the also had the second the second biggest streaming week in history, behind Drake.

Meanwhile, Ms. Minaj’s Queen debuted at number two on the Billboard chart behind Travis Scott’s Astroworld. 

As Weezy once said, “its Y-M. And we at ya neck like a violin.”

Kanye West Low-Key Recruits Lil Wayne, Migos, Timbaland, 2 Chainz & Tee Grizzley For New Album

Kanye West I Love It Pic

Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is in work mode. New reports claim the G.O.O.D. Music boss is putting in studio time with some of hip-hop’s biggest names.

According to report, Ye is currently in Miami creating new tunes with huge rap heavyweights.

Ye’s lineup of talent is insane — we’re talking Lil Wayne, Migos, Timbaland and 2 Chainz. He’s also working with rising stars Tee Grizzley and YNW Melly. We’re told the Miami recording sessions are a big reason Ye surprised Kim Kardashian with their new $14 million condo on South Beach. (TMZ)

Last month, Kanye revealed his interest in possibly making new music with folk legend Bob Dylan.

In November, Kanye hit up Twitter to announce a setback to his YANDHI album release.

Last fall, Kanye announced a couple major guest appearances.

Kanye revealed that Ty Dolla Sign, who he’s consistently termed as one of his “favorite musicians,” and Nicki Minaj will appear on YANDHI. The controversial artist went on to further say that Nicki did a verse on a song that addresses body shaming. “The concept right here, it’s a ‘Ye concept but I’mma say it y’all right now. I’m taking to stigmas in one because I love stigmas and flipping them into positive,” he said. (Hip Hop N More)
