Drake Shows Love for Aaliyah with Tattoo

Drake

Drake’s love for Aaliyah is no secret. Now the hip-hop star is making it permanent by tattooing a portrait of the late singer on his back. Drizzy, who sampled Aaliyah’s “At Your Best (You Are Love)” on his debut Thank Me Later, was seen with the tat while playing tennis shirtless. Aaliyah’s face appears on the left side of his back with a pair of wings above it. Now he will always have an angel watching over him.

    Crap… One thing I liked about him is that he was a rapper with no tats. Has he ever even so much as met her?

    @Ok…, that’s what I liked about him too, I thought he was sating an example that you could be a Rapper without getting your body all Tatted up.

    I like it, it looks like her so that’s good. Drake means a lot to me so I know why he feels the way he feels about Aaliyah.

    Lord please let a rapper like DMX come into hiphop and bring some street aggressiveness, all these “comb my girls hair” niggas are making rap look bad.

    @Ella Bee, your a dumbass hater, bitch take a seat, just because he’s showings his admiration doesn’t mean he’s a bitch. If you don’t like him simply scroll past cause no one need your 2 cents to be put in

    I mean, who really cares? People get tattoos of icons all the time like Biggie, Pac, Marilyn Monroe, etc. This is no different. She’s obviously “a positive motivating force” within his life when it comes through his music, so chill. Let it be.

    @Chet, Exactly! And he mentioned her in two of his songs Off of TAKE CARE… Buried Alive Interlude, And We’ll Be Fine

    Cakes Reply:

    @Chet, OMG EXACTLY! i was just about to say that same point. you don’t have to know the person personally. if it means something to YOU, who cares what anyone else thinks. and she definitely does cuz he referenced her in a couple of his songs.

    You don’t have to meet someone to love them. He obviously loved her music, and holds it close to him.

    As long as he is happy with the tat then that’s all that’s matters.

    It’s simply out of respect and admiration. Don’t understand why those of you object as if it’s a crime to show such to someone who has lost their life. Regardless of how you feel, consider before you type and rethink your perspective.

    Chet, nice “At Your Best” add-on.

    @Terrell, I think he was upset cause that dumb broad got his name on her fuckin forehead. Big difference.

  24. Pucci

    He’s inspired by her… There’s nothing wrong with him getting a tatoo of someone who inspires him. At least its really visible… Whether he met her or not, it’s flattering.

    [Reply]

  25. Pucci

    *NOT really visible…

    btw, i find it odd that becasue Drake is black (half-black), raps & is signed to Weezy’s label he’s considered a gangster or a wannabe? Have you ppl ever really listened to his music? Never heard a single line of gun play or drugs in his music. smh

    How he gets mad at a Tattoo artist for doing a tattoo of his name on a fan but he goes and does the same thing but he got a picture.

    [Reply]

    DrakeNickiOVO Reply:

    @Music Lover, First of all, it was on her FOREHEAD. The tattoo artist talked so much shit about the tattoo, he knew she was going to look stupid and he didn’t even try stopping her. And he talked shit about Drake too. There’s a big difference. That girl did something she was going to regret and the guy didnt even care.

    [Reply]

    Music Lover Reply:

    @DrakeNickiOVO, It is still hypocritial because he should not have made that big of a deal and when did the tattoo artist talk about Drake.

    Aaliyah is EVERYTHING to alot of people its not just about her music its about what she talked about in interviews how she touched people, her intelligence, her spirituality and her mysteriousness Aaliyah the name is not only very symbolic but so is Aaliyah! Drake loves Aaliyah and obviously if she was not in heaven he most likely would be very close with her maybe even in a relationship with her! plus ive seen several people with aaliyah tattoos in different countries and everything she is loved by many

    Y U MAD? Since when was it wrong to tat inspiration and the things that meant a lot to you? There are peeps who have Mario mushrooms, Michael Jackson and Darth Vader tattoos. And… so what?

    I bet the girl who tatted ‘DRAKE’ on her forehead never met him.

  40. just sayin

    the fck are yall bytching about now. I swear yall have to be some of he most miserable fcks to troll the world to get mad at a dude getting at tattoo of somebody that obviously influences him on his damn body.
    then you got street niccas on a fckin BLOG (something more popular with women) having the never to call drake soft
    Is evident that majority of you are legit retards that most likley suffer from some brain defect.
    im glad drake does shit like this, im glad his music is sensitive, im glad he does the opposite of what you dumb fcks consider respect worthy, im glad he is one of the few rappers to rap about what he wants/dress how he wants/and do wtf he wants regardless of the typical criticism from the hip hop community that is sure to come because now rap is all about following rather then leading and attacking people that set there self apart from the rest or in your words “soft”
    Im convinced doing the opposite of what majority people do is living right so i hope he continues on
