Anita Baker Stopped Show to Recognize and Praise Lil Wayne at Her Show
Anita Baker performed in Las Vegas this past weekend, and Lil Wayne was in the audience to see the legendary singer, and it doesn't really come as a surprise. The Rap icon sampled Baker on "Best Thing Yet," and during her show, she stopped to acknowledge him in the crowd, causing an uproar among fans.
In a clip shared via twitter, Anita took a second out of her set to acknowledge the Young Money founder, who stood up and thanked the audience for the round of applause. There was one fan in particular who couldn’t believe Lil Wayne was actually there in the flesh.
The person was wearing a yellow t-shirt and stood up behind Wayne to show his appreciation for the NOLA legend. As the “A Milli” rapper turned around, the fan opened his mouth in excitement after seeing the rapper’s face and took out his phone to record the wholesome moment.
This comes after Anita also praised Chance The Rapper for helping her acquire her master recordings.
“You should say hello to a friend of mine by way of the music industry and by way of helping me, helping me to get a hold and ownership of my master recordings,” Baker said, pointing at Chance, who stood up and thanked the audience for their applause and cheers.
