Drake and Nicki Minaj make him "hot" by default.

This has the least to do with Wayne's personal talent, but simply put, the fact that his artists, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and to a lesser extent, Tyga, are all among the most successful in hip-hop does contribute to his "hotness."

Lil Wayne is handed the opportunity to be on platinum songs like "The Motto" and "Faded," and it's not just a favor. Let's be real: He brings a lot to those records. You might make fun of "almost drowned in the pussy so I swam to her butt" on Twitter, but you rap along to when you hear it. This could turn into a whole tangent about how Wayne's entire charm is that he raps inane things like that, but that's not the point. The point is: Even if Lil Wayne hate reached such a fever pitch that all of his solo work from this point forward wasn't well-received, you'd still be forced to contend with him because a number of his artists are popping.

Call it the "We Gon Be Alright If We Put Drake on Every Hook" Theory.
