Drake Reveals Lil Wayne Mispronounced His Name During Their First Encounter

Canadian rapper, Aubrey Drake Graham has reminisced on his relationship with American music star, Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. better known as Lil Wayne began.

While conversing with Lil Yachty in Turks and Caicos, Drake revealed that when he collaborated with Wayne on the 2008 track “Ransom,” Wayne initially referred to him as “Drizzy Drake Rogers.”

Rogers is actually the name of one of Canada’s top internet providers and Wayne thought that was Drake’s last name, seeing they were sending tracks via email.

When “Ransom” dropped, Drake says he realized the error but didn’t have the heart to correct his mentor.

They had other successful collaborations after the error, and both recently earned a spot in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top 50 rappers list, although Wayne largely disagrees with his ranking.

Drake is ranked 8th, while Wayne is ranked 7th. However, Wayne recently told Apple Music that Jay-Z, Eminem and even the late greats Tupac and Biggie should not be considered better than him.
