NLE Choppa and Lil Wayne are forming a tight bond these days. The Memphis rapper hoped that the legendary MC will mentor him in the next chapter of his career, which appears to be the case. During the Boston date of the Welcome To Tha Carter tour, Lil Wayne brought out the Cottonwood 2 rapper to the stage, where they performed their collab record, “Ain’t Gonna Answer.” Before he left, NLE Choppa gifted Weezy in an incredible custom chain as a gift to honor the legacy that he built throughout the years.
“One second, before I head out, right? I wanna show my appreciation for you,” NLE Choppa told Wayne in front of the sold-out crowd. “I remember with the flowers. There was a value with the flower but it was something I really wanted to give you instead of the flowers today, alright? So let me get you right real fast,” he continued. NLE Choppa presented Lil Wayne with a chain inspired by Mount Rushmore that included gold figures that celebrated each era of Weezy’s career, from Tha Block Is Hot to today.

NLE Choppa spurred a viral moment earlier this year when he pulled out a bouquet of flowers, a skateboard, and a personal letter for Lil Wayne. In the note, Choppa explained how much Lil Wayne meant to him as an artist with hopes that they’d develop a little brother-big brother relationship. “I simply wanted to physically gift you these flowers to symbolize my appreciation for you as an artist, an icon, and more importantly, an inspiration,” he wrote in the message.
Besides NLE Choppa, the Welcome To Tha Carter tour included plenty of guest appearances since it launched earlier this month. In Toronto, Drake popped out as not only a surprise guest but the opening act. He later joined Weezy on stage to perform records like “The Motto.” A week later, Lil Wayne performed at Harlem’s famed Apollo Theater where he brought out Cam’ron to perform “Touch It Or Not” for the first time ever. With a few more dates left, we’re sure that Weezy has more surprises up his sleeve.
