Apparently, Drake wasn’t joking when he expressed how upset he was at the tattoo artist who inked one of his female fans with Drake’s name on her forehead recently.
According to Kevin Campbell, the Los Angeles tattoo artist responsible for inking the Drake fan with a “DRAKE” forehead tattoo, the Canadian rapper sent his “huge security dude” to visit the tattoo artist’s parlor recently. Drake threatened to beat the tattoo artist up during an interview with Power 106 radio station just last month.
When asked by someone on Twitter what ever happened with the Drake beef, Campbell responded, “guess you could call it sorted out. When Drake was in LA last, he parked out front the shop and sent in his huge security dude.” Another Tweeter then replied, “Well that’s what bitch niggas do, he really made himself more like a sweet bitch with that move!” To which Campbell responded, “Yeah, he should have just let it go, I doubt anything would have come of what he said anyway. It just made him look silly IMO.”
Campbell claims that throughout the ordeal, Drake stayed inside of his vehicle, which was parked in front of the shop.
Although it is unclear what exactly happened when the bodyguard confronted Campbell, what is clear is that Drake’s reaction was prompted by comments Campbell made to Vice Magazine recently.
“I guess I feel bad that this dumbass got the name of the softest muthafucka in hip-hop tattooed on her forehead,” he told the publication. “But what makes that any less valid of a tattoo to her? I lost a little sleep over it that first night, wondering if I wanted to be known as the asshole who tattooed “DRAKE” on some crackhead’s forehead. None of the face tattoos I had done prior to this got any publicity, so I was a little surprised that this one took off like it did. I’m still kinda debating whether or not I should send you guys the whole set of pictures, I don’t really want to paint the shop in a bad light, but it is what it is. In the end, she paid me to do this to her, which really means she did this to herself.”
During his own interview on Power 106, the Young Money artist also voiced his opinions on Campbell. “The guy who tatted it is a fucking asshole, though,” he said. “I will tell you that. I don’t fuck with that guy. Fuck you to that tat artist, by the way, ’cause you’re an asshole, for real. And you should lose your job, and you should never do tattoos again. I don’t fuck with you and if I ever see you I’m gonna fuck you up.” —Christian Bonoan
