"Drake is like my little brother," Birdman told TheBoomBox, not long after hearing the news of the nominations. "I was just looking at him earlier, I was watching video like, 'Man, look at this youngster.' He's so young, he's so talented [he's] not just a rapper [he's a] well rounded artist. I solute the youngins."
Drizzy's career continues to move at a hyper pace as he snags endorsement deals and owns the music charts. The Canadian rapper is poised to take over the R&B world with the release of his new R&B-tinged mixtape, 'It's Never Enough,' which he is hoping to release just in time for Christmas.
"I got a lot of love and respect for Drake," Birdman continures. "I think he gonna be around. I tell him he's already a legend but time will show that because legends become legends off of time and work. I just see a big future for Drake I think he's gonna' be around a long time doing different things he's so talented, it's amazing to me."
