Drake Gets a Lil Wayne Tattoo
To what will be the surprise of everyone, the latest celebrity likeness to find a spot on Drake's body doesn't belong to a beautiful songstress. Recently, images from Drizzy's photo shoot with Rolling Stone leaked onto the internet, and we saw a tattoo of Lil Wayne's face plastered onto his left tricep. Peep Drizzy's new ink and the Weezy image that inspired it below.
The Toronto rapper's new tattoo mirrors a picture of Weezy making a trigger finger sign with his hand and taking aim. Seeing as this tattoo wasn't spotted at any point before, it feels safe to assume Drizzy got it done a very short time ago. Looks pretty dope.
For Drake, the Weezy tattoo is a fitting tribute to the man who's probably most responsible for his current success. While the Toronto entertainer is now an all-consuming pop culture force, nine years ago, he was just a guy with an intriguing mix of rap and R&B. When J. Prince sent Weezy some of the guy's music, though, things changed.
Soon, Weezy collabed with Drake on tracks like "Ransom," and a cut on his So Far Gone mixtape. Eventually, Weezy signed Drizzy to his Young Money Records imprint, and the rest is history. So yeah. You could say Drizzy's got a lot to be grateful for.
In the past, Drizzy's gotten tattoos of Aaliyah and Sade inked onto his body. A little while back, he met Celine Dion and jokingly claimed he'd get a tattoo of her likeness next. He was probably joking, but we wouldn't exactly put it past him.
Before we get to see that, though, we can enjoy Drizzy's newest tattoo below.
