Today is Lil Wayne Day over at Interview magazine blog. For some reason, the music giant decided to honor the troubled rapper by making every story on their front page about him.

In one post, my favorite rapper, Drake, reminisces on the day he met his idol -- and future boss -- Weezy. Drake's demo tape somehow made its way into Lil Wayne's personal iPod, and the rest, as they say, is history.

"The music was played to him by someone I knew at the time who was around him. I assume it was played on the tour bus, you know, but I never really got the exact story. Two songs into it, he stopped the CD and asked the person to get me on the phone. I showed up to Houston and I was staying at the Hotel Derek, I remember. They brought me to my room and I was just in disbelief, like, "What am I doing here?" You know? For me it was surreal.

I got a knock on the door and it was E.I., who later went on to become one of my closest friends. He was just like, you know, "Wayne wants to see you on the bus. And I'm his, I'm his road manager." So he brought me on the bus, and Wayne was getting like the most painful tattoo in the world. He was getting these huge wings on each side of his body. I'm a very observant person, you know, and when I haven't met somebody, and I get the chance to actually see them in person, I try not to talk too much. I speak when spoken to. I'm just staring around taking in little things, you know... ashtrays and cups, what that person's eating, what that person's hobbies are, if I can tell by looking—I really study an individual by their surroundings.

Then he proceeded to play me Tha Carter III—of course I was blown away at the time, 'cause nobody had heard it yet. I heard it front to back and it was, it was amazing. I just remember like little anecdotes, like somebody came on the bus like, "Yo, Kobe Bryant wants an iPod so he can play it tonight." It was just like crazy, crazy things that [went] on in Wayne's life every day. Everybody's a Lil' Wayne fan.

    Good morning. One thing you can say about Drake is that he LOVES his Mama un-conditionally. Very rare to see popular rappers embracing their mothers. The last i can remember is notorious B.I.G. he loved his mama as if she were his big sister.

    Drake isn't gay...More than a little lame/square yes...but gay... :nono:
