Young Money's Drake recently talked about Lil Wayne preparing for his one-year jail sentence for felony gun possession and said his mentor will forever go unmatched within hip-hop.
From Drizzy's perspective, Wayne's absence will force his team of artists to work harder.
"I think you'll miss everything about Wayne," Drake suggested in an interview. "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. 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. He's a strong-willed guy. I can imagine it would take a toll on anybody. I just hope that he comes out for the better." (Rolling Stone)
Young Money's Jae Millz recently shared his thoughts on Wayne reporting to jail.
"What the f*ck you think I'm gonna do for eight months," Milz asked in an interview. "You gonna here so much free tunes, 'FreeLil Wayne,' I'm gonna make y'all n*ggas hate hearing that sh*t. I'm gonna make y'all n*ggas be like, 'They need to let that n*gga Wayne out. We tired of hearing this n*gga Millz say 'Free Lil Wayne, he only got eight months, I know n*ggas that got f*cking 20 years, what's eight months?' It ain't nothing to a n*gga who used to making money." (This Is 50)
Nicki Minaj also discussed her reaction to Wayne doing a jail bid.
"He is going to be up there in February. I'll [visit him] as often as I can. I mean, he's gonna be in New York and I'm from New York, so, I would love to just come up there as often as I can. But he's gonna be, there's gonna be so many people there so you know, I'm sure it'll go by in like, days, to him. It'll probably be a very weird experience but I think at the end he'll come out stronger, like, he always does. Nothing ever fazes him really." (Jenny Boom Boom TV)
Cash Money's Jay Sean previously said Wayne has seen the ups and downs of stardom.
When asked if Wayne seemed blase about serving his upcoming prison term for gun charges, Sean says that Wayne is blase about a lot of things: "He's just seen it all and done it all. He's seen so much in his life. He's got all the money, he's had all the girls. I think all that drives him is to stay on top. So he's looking at this like, 'Oh OK, let's get this out of the way and get back to work.'" (CNN International)
