AS far as friendships in the music world go, theirs is seen as one of the most solid, with Lil Wayne being credited for much of Drake’s success after signing him to Young Money Entertainment.
But in a new book proposal, Lil Wayne reveals their bond was tested when Canadian rapper, Drake confessed to sleeping with one of his girlfriends while he was imprisoned for gun possession in 2010.
TMZ quotes Wayne, real name Dwayne Carter, as writing: ‘This is the type of s**t that a man never wants to find out when he’s locked up. Or, maybe so, cause only God knows what I would have done if I wasn’t locked up right now.’
Wayne, who reportedly learned of the tryst during a visit from Drake, added that he confronted the unnamed woman about the encounter and was told it happened the day before she met him.
According to the site, he also wrote: ‘I woke up feeling f****d up about the f****d up day that I had … finding out that she f****d Drake was the absolute worst thing I could’ve ever found out.
‘As a man, honestly, that s**t hurt … and not because it was Drake, it could have been any man. It would’ve hurt the same.’
Earlier last week, Drake made headlines of his own, when he called on fans to boycott film Drake’s Homecoming: The Lost Footage.
TMZ reported the distributors of the film are suing the Truffle Butter star for publicly disowning the film.
Filmed in 2009, the movie shows one of the last concerts the musician did before being signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money label which turned him into one of the biggest rappers in the world.
While in theatres for one night only, the Canadian rapper told his more than 21 million Twitter follows to not go to the film.
He said: ‘The Drake Homecoming film is not something OVO or Drake have any part in. I feel it is my responsibility to inform and protect my fans.’
Without fans to watch it, those behind the film are calling fowl suing the star, as they claim he agreed to the film in 2009.
According to the LA Times, Drake signed a deal with Serious Entertainment, the promoters of the Homecoming concert.
In his contract, which was obtained by The Times, the rapper agreed to the concert’s filming and was paid a $15,000 cash fee and promised a 15 per cent profit royalty for his participation in the project.
In the film which is set to be shown in 350 theatres across America – a then 22-year-old Drake is seen performing at Toronto’s Sound Academy.
He does not provide any interview or support to the film.
However, Jas Prince, the man credited with discovering the then television star’s rap career is interviewed in the film, but Drake has claimed he too is asking fans to boycott the film.
The Coming Home rapper wrote: ‘James Prince and I stand together on not supporting the Drake Homecoming footage in theatres. #protectingthefans.’
It is not known how much the distribution company is asking for in damages.
Since his boycott request, Drake has been focusing on other things, namely a trip to Dubai at the request of the royal family.
