Drake is showing love to one of his main homies, Noel Cadastre AKA OVO Noel. The rapper shared a photo of himself and his sole engineer on Instagram. Now, there have got to be more recent pictures of the pair, but Drake opted for a quasi-vintage one, going for a throwback day-one kind of vibe. The photo came along with a sweet caption, describing Drake’s admiration and appreciation for Noel’s hard work. The love is real:

Too busy doing dirty work…my g thank you for being there to make this happen no matter what by any means and thank you for learning and stepping up and perfecting your craft…please enjoy tonight you deserve it REF ONE Happy Birthday @ovonoel 🌙 

Noel’s latest post is, of course, one of Drake. He posted a short clip on his own IG account to promote Drake’s latest music video, the opening shot of the “Nonstop” visual treatment. The full production is available for streaming here.

Drake and Noel are indeed part of a close-knit group and their fans are here for the loyalty and consideration they show for each other. And yes, Noel Cadastre joined the team through Noah “40” Shebib before Drake released “No New Friends,” in case you didn’t know.
