    Lil Wayne has been a big part of the success of both Drake and Nicki Minaj's music, but he doesn't think that their careers will ever be matched.

    Wayne recently spoke on Instagram Live with Sovereign Brands CEO Brett Berish, and told Brett that there will never be a rapper that emulates Drake or Nicki.

    Wayne responded to a question about whether he's looking for the next Drake or Nicki, saying, "Ain’t no such thing as the next Nicki or the next Drake."

    He went on to elaborate, saying that their discoveries were a result of no social media existing. Now, people are always finding new artists. "Back then...when I discovered Drake and Nicki the game was different," he explained. "They came in during a time where right before the whole social media popped off. So they came in when music had everybody's attention.

    "Meaning, it had everybody looking to see what is next? Who is next? Then you got an option - Is this is what's next? Do I like it? Yay or nay? That's not what it is these days, Brett. Now there are a thousand new things a day."
