(Photos) Drake Has Signed A New Deal – But What Does This Mean?

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.”

Recently the Guardian reported that hoverboards are now illegal to ride on streets and roads of the UK. According to the Crown Prosecution Service, the boards are too unsafe to ride on the road, but too dangerous to ride on the pavement. That being said, they can only be legally used on private property – with the landowner’s permission. Wonder if people are still going to try it anyway!
