Rap stars Lil Wayne, Fabolous and Tyler, the Creator have followed Kanye West‘s lead by applauding actor Leonardo DiCaprio‘s big Academy Awards win last night (February 28).
The music trio relied on their social media pages to shout-out the Hollywood superstar’s “Best Actor” award.

Rap heavyweight Kanye West name-dropped Leo in a Twitter post following his massive victory.
After handfuls of past nominations, Leo finally snagged a hard-earned Oscar Sunday (February 28) night.
“Climate change is real,” he said. “It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat affecting our species. We need to work together and stop procrastinating.” DiCaprio concluded by urging support for those people whose “voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed”. “Let us not take this planet for granted,” he said. “I do not take tonight for granted.” (The Guardian)
A couple days ago, Kanye co-signed Hollywood actor Ben Stiller‘s Zoolander 2 movie on Twitter.
