(Photo) Skepta Gets An OVO Tattoo

Back in October, Drake debuted new ink on his shoulder. “bbk” stands as a dedication to UK rapper Skepta’s label, Boy Better Know, as the pair have gotten close in the last year or so. Now Skepta has returned the favor, tattooing the OVO owl on him. “From Toronto with solid bullet proof love,” he wrote with a photo of the tat. Check it out in the gallery.

In 2015, we saw Drake get a ‘BBK’ tattoo, an homage to UK rapper Skepta’s Boy Better Know crew. The pair had collaborated on a couple of songs up until that point, but it appeared that they really had developed a deep friendship. I mean, tattooing crews is a pretty serious deal. Does Drizzy even have a Young Money tat? Fast forward a few months, and Drake just updated his Instagram with the following, while across the pond:

“The first Canadian signed to BBK. Big up my brudda @skeptagram for life yeah. And my section gunners too.”

Drake certainly has interesting ways of showing people he rocks with them. Whether signing someone to his label (then barely doing anything with them after,) haphazardly remixing their song (and not clearing it for an iTunes release,) telling someone he’d remixed their song (but never actually sending it to them, thus making them look silly) and now…getting someone’s crew tattooed on his shoulder. Yup, Drizzy tattooed ‘bbk’ on his shoulder, an ode to UK rapper Skepta’s Boy Better Know label. This isn’t the first time Drake has paid homage via ink, as the OVO rapper has multiple Aaliyah-inspired tattoos, as well as portraits of his father and his uncle. Over the summer, Drake remixed one of Skepta’s songs and premiered it on OVO Sound Radio, and later brought the rapper out during his performance at Wireless Fest. Guess they’re BFFs these days!
