Gabby Douglas recently told MTV at the premiere of Justin Bieber’s Believe documentary that she listens to a lot of Lil Wayne and Drake music while she works out and trains. The Olympic Gold Medalist also explained that Weezy and Drizzy‘s music gets her hyped, but she only listens to the clean versions of their rap songs.
“A lot of rap music. Lil Wayne and Drake, the edited versions of course, but it gets me really hyped up.”
If you didn’t already know, Gabby Douglas is the very first African American gymnast to win a solo Olympic gold medal. In 2012, Wayne also tweeted how proud he was of Gabby for winning her medal: “Glad i lived to see what Gabby Douglas did in the Olympics. Icon.”
