Drake performs onstage during the Final Stop of 'Aubrey & The three Amigos Tour' at State Farm Arena on Nov. 18, 2018 in Atlanta. 

Every now and then, Drake gives fans a peek into what's inspiring him at the moment. The 6 God flooded his Instagram Story Wednesday morning (Feb. 6) with screenshots featuring a range of tracks that he was listening to via Apple Music. 

A co-sign from Drizzy can go a long way in the music industry these days, as the Toronto native prides himself on providing the grand stage to burgeoning acts. Drake did something similar around the time of Scorpion's release, where credited certain artists and songs that he may have pulled inspiration from when cooking up for the project.

First up, the OVO rapper kicked off the series of posts with Metro Boomin'Not All Heroes Wear Capes deep cut "Borrowed Love" featuring assists from Swae Lee and Wizkid. Drake then shined the spotlight on emerging ATL rapper Lil Keed, and finished off by showing some love to Dre Nello, Jai Paul, and British artist King Krule.
