Drake Visits Jimi Hendrix’s Gravesite

During a stop at the Bumbershoot festival in Seattle, Drake visited the grave of rock legend Jimi Hendrix, who passed away 16 years before Drizzy was born.

“I’m a huge fan—I play the DVD of Hendrix at Woodstock to pump me up before I perform,” Drake told Rolling Stone. “Watching him go out there at 10 in the morning in shitty weather and conquer the crowd always gives me a little more adrenaline. I just left a little letter for Jimi at his grave.”

What did Drake say to the late rocker? “I just wrote him a message on a pack of Zig-Zags. It said, ‘Still inspired.'”
