Weezy recently showed his adoration for his protégé by purchasing him an iced-out chain of his favorite number: 6. The piece was designed by famed jewelry maker Elliot, who took to Instagram to show off the diamond-encrusted necklace for the 6 God. In his caption for the piece, the popular jeweler added his usual hashtag #ShouldaWentToElliot as a testament to the quality of his work. Elliot has worked on pieces for fellow rappers like Offset, Future and more.
As you know, Wayne signed Drake to Young Money in 2009, but the love goes far beyond label success. Drizzy even tattooed a portrait of his mentor on his left tricep in 2017 to compliment inkwork of his parents, Aaliyah, and Sade.
In related news, it was announced that the hip-hop heavyweight might be setting up shop in Las Vegas for a residency. As per reports, he is planning on getting comfortable in Sin City after signing a $10 million contract to do 12 shows over the next two years at Wynn Las Vegas' XS Nightclub. "Vegas! When I came back, I thought it'd be back at T-Mobile Arena... But I’ll be back here at XS all year. You’ll have a lotta chances to see me," he reportedly told the crowd at a recent XS Nightclub showing, as per the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
