Young Money's Nicki Minaj showed her boss Lil Wayne just how much love she has for him by giving Weezy F. Baby a fancy $70,000 birthday present this week.
According to reports, Minaj dropped the paper on a fancy sports car.
What do you get the man who has everything? Nicki Minaj figured it out ... getting Lil Wayne one of the craziest awesome gifts ever for his 30th birthday ... a tiny 3-wheeled $70,000 sports car called a T-REX. Sources close to Nicki tell TMZ, the new "American Idol" judge got Weezy a Campagna T-Rex 14R -- a two-seater motorcycle-car hybrid that's ultra-lightweight at 1,040 pounds ... and FAST, reaching speeds of 150mph.

She also spent another $20,000 to customize Wayne's birthday gift.
The trike retails for roughly $50,000 but we're told Nicki tricked hers out as a special "thank you" for all Wayne's done for her career -- dropping a total of $70,000 on Weezy's gift. We're told the car-thing was delivered to Wayne at his giant 30th birthday bash in Hollywood last night -- and the rapper was stoked about the present. Young money. (TMZ)
The male rap star has plenty to celebrate this week after breaking late music icon Elvis Presley's Hot 100 record.
He'll always be the King of Rock and Roll, but when it comes to the artist with the most Billboard Hot 100 hits, Elvis Presley 's longstanding record total gives way to a new stats king: Lil Wayne. As he debuts as a featured artist (with Chris Brown , Tyga and Wiz Khalifa ) on Game 's aptly titled "Celebration" at No. 82, the superstar rapper rewrites the mark for the most Hot 100 chart visits. Now with 109 entries, Weezy passes Elvis Presley, who totaled 108 between the chart's 1958 launch and 2003. The "Glee" cast is the only act with more Hot 100 hits than Lil Wayne or Presley, having tallied 204 entries since its 2009 arrival. (Billboard)
Back in 2008, Cash Money Records co-founder Birdman treated Weezy to $1 million for his birthday.
Birthday boy Lil Wayne was left stunned when mentor and pal Birdman handed him $1 million at his 26th birthday party in Miami on Tuesday night. Stars DJ Khaled and Akon looked on in amazement as the "Got Money" hitmaker opened a briefcase Birdman handed him and discovered it was full of crisp new bills. A stunned party guest says, "Lil Wayne was left speechless. He was almost in tears when he hugged his friend. I mean, who wouldn't like $1 million as a birthday gift?" The Club Mansion bash was a lavish affair all round 00 one of the party's main attractions was an ice sculpture full of frozen $100 bills. (SF Gate)
