When Lil Wayne feels discouraged, his fans, including famous admirers, lift him up. After a judge decided last week to postpone Lil Wayne's lawsuit against Universal Music Group until the rapper's legal issues with his record label, Cash Money, are resolved, Weezy took to Twitter on Saturday to write, "I am now defenseless and mentally defeated & I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I'm dun." Some read the "I'm dun" and feared the worst, and though Wayne took the time to Tweet a follow-up ("I'm good y’all don’t trip”) many, including Chance the Rapper and Missy Elliott, came out to show their support. Drake, who's first label deal was through Lil Wayne's Young Money, went all in on showing his love, inviting Wayne to join him onstage at his Houston concert where Weezy shouted, "Fuck Cash Money." Afterwards, Drake wrote on Instagram, "We are fighting until you get yours." Check out the responses below, including a surprisingly nice tweet from former friend turned mortal enemy Young Thug (you can revisit their epic feud here): 

The boss @liltunechi. We are fighting until you get yours. Freedom to drop music and peace of mind. I don't know what these other weirdos are on with all the side talks but I know you gave me a shot and all I can ever do with the rest of my life is return the favor. YOUNG MONEY FOREVER
