Lil Wayne may be Drake's mentor, but he can't help but find humor in the performer's June 14 nightclub brawl with fellow singer Chris Brown.
"Honestly, I laughed at them," Lil Wayne told MTV News. "I can't front, I just laughed at them ... like, it's funny to me."
Even if he is having a strange reaction to the melee, he said he wouldn't trade places with the pair, adding, "I thank God I ain't going through it though, I've already been through too much." The warring hip-hop stars have been sued twice in recent weeks, first for $16 million by a company with ties to the club then again by a male model who suffered hand lacerations.
Drake is an artist on the label Lil Wayne founded, Young Money Entertainment. Lil Wayne previously tried to help his young talent and Brown settle the dispute by offering to mediate.
