... but one face was missing

Lil Wayne had a surprise birthday party last night, but some important names might have been left off of the guest list. It didn’t take long after Nicki Minaj posted the clip of Wayne standing with his cake — and saluting the now late Hugh Hefner — for his daughter Reginae to start asking questions.

“Wow, had no idea about this,” she wrote under The Shade Room’s post of Nicki’s video. Minaj caught wind of the comment and responded to Wayne’s daughter.

“I swear fo Gawd I asked him where u at,” wrote Minaj. “He said u started college, Miss Thang & u wouldn’t be have been able to make it to Miami. But blame Mack, sis. He planned it.” “Yup, on the way to class now,” she responded. “Well, it looked like you had a ball.”

Another big name wasn’t on hand for Wayne’s party at the LIV nightclub in Miami, but he still took a second to wish the rapper a happy birthday. Drake celebrated his one-time mentor turning 35 by posting a tribute to Wayne on Instagram.

“Happy Birthday bossssssy!” he wrote. “Thank you for the endless tools and the inspiration! I would have been lost at how to maneuver this game without watching you do it first. I remember when they told you that it was impossible to build a skate ramp on your roof…and then I came back and you were skating on your roof. Please never change. Love for life.”
