Yesterday (July 8), Tyga debuted his visual for his latest track, "Lightskin Lil Wayne." The video begins by stating "A tribute to the GOAT." Throughout the four-minute video, Tyga reenacts Weezy's iconic videos including "A Milli," "Lollipop" and "Fireman."
After watching Tyga's video, Lil Wayne couldn't help but express his gratitude. He explained in his Instagram post that he is at a lost for words.
"Love!!!!!! That's too dope bro. I'm at a lost for words after watching & listening to that! It feels gratifying to be honored in such a way! It feels uber better when it's from ya broski!! Love @tyga - Light Skinned Tunechi!" he wrote as the caption.
More recently, Tyga wasn't the only artist to reference the impact that Weezy has had on music. While showing off a diamond-encrusted Young Money chain, Drake encouraged fans to cite their favorite Wayne song.
"Favourite Lil Wayne song in the comments only..." he wrote as the caption.
Back in 2014, Lil Wayne reportedly wasn't too happy with Tyga's decision to part ways with Young Money Entertainment. Despite that minor bump in the road, the two artists were able to keep in touch throughout the years. Last month, Tyga released his seventh studio album, Legendary, which Weezy made a guest appearance on. The two collaborated on the track "On Me."
It's no secret that Lil Wayne has had a helping hand with many artists' careers. Weezy has helped Tyga, Nicki Minaj, Jae Millz, Cory Gunz and many more.
