Young Money’s Drake showed his support for incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne by performing a short “Free Weezy” freestyle during this week’s appearances.
Speaking at an Atlanta showcase, Drake also showed support for jailed rappers Lil Boosie and Gucci Mane.
“All right, f*ck it, this is what I say,” Drake told an Atlanta crowd. “I say on behalf of Weezy, f*ck the NYPD/Don’t believe what they be saying about us on the TV, talking sh*t is easy/Being real is harder, who’d a thought the real would come way across the border/Free my n*gga Tunechi, he ain’t even do sh*t/One more shout to Boosie, shot goes out to Gucci…” (Real Talk NY Video)
Additional reports claim that the rapper is preparing to release a full-length “Free Weezy” song.
What shocked a few people in attendance was his “Free Weezy” song. It has been rumored to drop for awhile now, but has yet to see the light of day. If this is any indication, and goes according to internet protocol, the mp3 should surface soon.

Drake recently revealed that his Thank Me Later song with Wayne is called “Miss Me.”
“That’s actually a Lil Wayne song,” he explained in an interview referring to “Afrika Bambaataa.” “I don’t know where that confusion came from. I was just on set that day when he was shooting that video. That’s not even my song. I’m not even on it, to be honest with you. Me and Wayne have a song on my album — a song called ‘Miss Me.’ It’s a pretty straightforward [song]. It’s a song about being away from what you love and hoping that when you’re gone, doing you, somebody out there misses you. It goes for Wayne in his situation and it goes for me in my situation, ’cause I’m on the road for I don’t how long right now.” (MTV)
Last week, Drake confirmed his album’s new release date and discussed a possible movie career.
“The album comes out on June 15th,” Drake confirmed in an interview. “It was really just about me getting into the right creative head space and delivering a first album that people could all appreciate. So, I think I got it now. Yeah, June 15th, I’m excited…Television is sort of an exhausting, repetitive format to be in but I’m definitely, like after this album and I have another project I have in mind that I want to do but after that I’ll probably get back into some movies, yeah. I’m excited to do movies again. I like being on set.” (Music On Campus)
