Lil Wayne and Mack Maine welcome new Young Money signee Mellow Rackz onto their team with an iced-out chain.
Lil Wayne is a special emcee, the likes of which is seldom seen in the rap game. While many OGs certainly are respected by hip-hop’s new generation, there are few who have proven as directly influential as Lil Wayne.
To this day, he remains an active collaborator with plenty of current-day stars, including Lil Baby, DaBaby, and Polo G; he even keeps active on the boom-bap circuit, having recently linked with Westside Gunn and Conway The Machine to flex his elite lyrical prowess. Suffice it to say, there’s a reason he remains so widely respected by such a wide variety of rappers, and it’s no wonder that many are keen to join his Young Money empire.
