Drake says hip hop will miss Lil Wayne
As previously reported, Lil Wayne is expected to get sentenced to an eight-month prison sentence for gun possession.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Wayne's mentor Drake eulogised: "I think you'll miss everything about Wayne. I don't think there will be anybody like Lil Wayne ever again in hip-hop.
"He paralyzes a room when he walks into it - his wordplay, the excitement that he brings to his music."
He then warned the hip-hop community: "I think that for eight months a lot of us will have to work a lot harder to keep hip-hop as exciting as it's been for the last two years."
