Drake Sends Bodyguards To “Drake” Forehead Tattoo Artist’s Shop

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

    This is sad to hear, specially as a Drizzy fan. He’s been doing a lot of things recently that I personally don’t agree with…

    • Alan

      LMAO…I’m not surprised…not he will be FORCE to try and keep this image up. I’m truly a believer now that Drake really is concerned about his label “Sweet.” That was a horrible move on his part….but that’s what this New Generation does…try to be “Gangsta!!” Now…doesn’t Common diss seems even more accurate? Yes it does!!!!

  • No Name

    Really? This is stupid. Sure it’s the artist’s fault for going through with this nonsense in the first place when he could’ve easily denied her service. But I’d be more upset with the chick for wanting and allowing this.

    • Alan

      yeah but why not get paid off peoples stupidity? She clearly knew what she wanted and had the money to do so? But that’s my view. I’m so disappointed with Drake on this one…I’m not a fan of his music but respected him. But to take it there was unnecessary and childish. This makes Drake look Bad…REALLY BAD! and also makes DRAKE LOOK EVEN MORE SWEET. Common is gonna have a field day with this one. LMAO

  • James

    The funny thing is that at the beginning of the Power 106 interview Drake said he really liked the tattoo. He thought it was great! If you think the tattoo is a good look why would you want dude to get fired? Oh b/c he hurt your feeling??

    That’s not a good enough reason.

    DRAKE is slowly diggin’ his own grave. Watch, I said it first.

    Drake clearly has the lines blurred between his rap persona and reality.

    Rap persona: In his mind he’s a hard mothafu*ka who can carry a tune for the ladies.

    Reality: He could get his ass whipped by 80% of all rappers in the game and his street cred (if he ever had any) is taking a nose dive. He is acting like an 18 year old girl if this story is true. If the story’s not true, he’s still looking like an 18 year old girl by being overly sensitive.

    Gangstarr said it best. “Suckas need bodyguards”.

    Tattoo artist did his job and Drake is the one that came out with a song with a hook about tattoo my name on you and he’s surprised? This dude is a bitch. I don’t fuck with Drake anymore each day his personality shows how much of a lame he is. I wish someone would smack this kid

    Drake was and will never be hard. He is in the top ten biggest pussy’s in hip hop then again I don’t consider his weak shit to be hip hop. Real hip hop has been in short supply since shortly after the 90′s. I would love to fight drake anyday anytime.

  • drake’s a dumbass

    if i ever see you i’m gonna fuck you up = i’m gonna pay someone to fuck you up
    the tattoo artist did his job. end of story. do you blame the clerk at 711 for selling you cigarettes and vodka?
