It is good to honour your mentor but US based Canadian rapper Drake took it to another level when he got rapper Lil Wayne’s face inked on his left tricep. Having acquired it five months back, this tattoo was revealed to public on his Instagram page after wrapping up the Houston Weekend Appreciation (HAW) he hosted at Houston Spire last Sunday.
‘Drizzy’ as he likes to call himself did this in a special way of honouring Lil Wayne who is the person that turned him into a celebrated artiste today after signing to his Young Money record label in the year 2009. The tattoo is a close up photo of the 34 year old rapper clad in a black cap, flashing his two fingers in a ‘finger gun’ gesture.
On the same spot, Drake’s new tattoo joins and lies below two others that is, Dancehall artiste Popcaan’s Unruly record label skull (Unruly Skull) and a bottle of Drakkar Noir cologne. He however has other faces inked on his body like for the late Aaliyah, two of singer Sade and his parents’ Dennis and Sandi.
In Uganda, singer Bebe Cool made news after he tattooed his wife Zuena’s name on his neck while Jose Chameleone also followed suit by tattooing Daniella his wife’s name on his neck too.
