While the rest of you birthday guys and gals were indulging in your Edible Arrangements, Lil Wayne was busy enjoying his new $70,000 car courtesy of Nicki Minaj. Tunechi only turns 30 once—here are 30 photos of him through the years—and his Young Money protege thought that was the perfect occasion to make Weezy the proud new owner of T-Rex cyclecar. 

The T-Rex cyclecar is a three-wheeled, two-seat vehicle that runs on a manual transmission. Technically classified as a motorcyle, it's basically the adult version of a really cool Power Wheels. Nicki made sure to deck Lil Wayne's T-Rex out to ensure he never forgets who gave it to him—the back of the car is emblazoned with "Nicki Loves Tunechi."

Watch below as Lil Wyane gets all emotional when Nicki unveils her gift for him. "For what, dawg? For what, dawg? Thank you, dawg. You didn't have to, dawg... Y'all didn't get the memo, no gifts?" Weezy asks before bowing down to Minaj. 

Yo Nicki, I turn 30 next year. I really like free vacations, just FYI...
