Drake Gets Aaliyah Tattoo On His Back

Drizzy gets Baby Girl imprinted on him permanently.

Drake hasn't been shy about his affinity for Aaliyah in the past, but now he's taken his fandom to another level.

HipHopSince1987.com has provided a picture of the Toronto emcee with a tattoo of Aaliyah's face on his back as he plays a round of tennis.

Drake previously wrote a letter addressing the late singer:

“Dear Dana,” he began, using her middle name. “I’ve never lost a parent, a friend, or a lover but I will never forget this day for the rest of my life. I remember getting the news that you had passed and it connected with my heart like a clean shot from Muhammad Ali. I was crushed.”

Below is the image of Drake with the tattoo, seen on the far right:

      ask yourself what's the difference between a tat across your forehead and a tat on your back and get back to us.

  • Andre

    So i got a question then..... Does that make the game soft because you know he has a tattoo of eazy-e on him right? And trench off naughty by nature has a image on tupac right on his forearm right? So you say drake is gay and soft but he has a female tattoo on his back.....Let me say it again a female....What does trench and game on them......A man.......... Hating is for niggas that have no job and no life....Stick a fork in the socket. Good day

      Yo i feel you but the only thing is Pac was one of treach's favorite people and was his best friend. Drake never met Aaliyah and def. didnt know her well enough to warrant a tattoo of her on his back...A better comparison would be if me or you got a tattoo of 2pac on our back even though we never met him...I do feel like its sad when something like this is an article and ppl do look for anything they can to discredit Drake, hes one of m favorite rappers. But this is an undeniably "soft" thing to do, especially considering it would be wack to tat your girlfriend's name on you so this is much much worse in a way lol...but I feel you

    So let me get this straight. This fool said that he wanted to beat the fuck out of that tattoo artist who tatted "DRAKE" on a lady's forehead, but is gonna get a tattoo on his back of Aaliyah. So, once that Aaliyah tattoo is finished, is he gonna want to beat the fuck out of the guy who is giving him the tattoo as well??

      gossipers. in the real world if u wanna get paid and move thru the circles you don't get any visible tattoos.

    • GoReadABook

      This shit literally makes no sense. The only common or comparable thing between the two scenarios is someone got a tattoo of someone famous as a tribute to them. Drake wanted to 'beat the fuck' outta the tattoo artist because he did an interview and took shots at drake specifically citing the rapper as being a terrible choice for the forehead tattoo because he is 'the softest motherfucker in hip-hop'. Drake was not just angry that the tattoo artist did the tattoo, and concordantly his fucking job, because that would make no sense. I hope this clears things up for you. Quit making irrelevant comments just to hate on someone everyone else is already hating on, you stupid fuck.

    so he tattooed a known whore on his back. dumb motherfucker. yes she is dead and i feel bad for her family but everybody in the industry knew she was a whore.

    • Anonymous

      ??????????? I don't even know what to say to this. Everyone in the music industry can be justified as a whore, but unless you followed Aaliyah around, I suggest you shut your fucking mouth. The woman had fucking talent and she was humble as hell. The fuck are you?

  • ESCOXTCNYC

    What's happened to hip hop. When I was growing up it used to be that the faces of hip hop were actual men, think Big Daddy Kane. Now you got these androgynous "men" like Big Shawn and this ridiculous assclown Drake. The no nothing mainstream can keep this overrated Canadian closet case. I won't buy the hype.

  • Hypestyle

    God bless the dead, Aaliyah, we wish you were still here. But this is just so damned stupid. If this guy's serious about getting more into acting, multiple, obvious tats are going to be a dealbreaker.. and I guess any woman he's with will have to know that they're competing with a ghost..

  • SaWz

    Why Drake is a homo -Talks in a fake black American accent -Gets tattoos of dead singers and owls -Constantly dick rides other rappers and artists so they will like him -Talks tough on record but gets dissed and never responds back -Tries to act like a gangster saying "catch a body" and "suu wuu" -Has gayish mannerisms and hand movements -Thinks he's Sade -Tries to make Canada seem hard -Has fruity boy orgasms over His butt buddy "SOoo GOOOD OHH LIL WAYNE!" -Is Canadian -Played a character even cornier then himself on a Canadian children's soap opera -Tries to dress like Kanye -Is Nicki Manaj's best gay friend -Grew up rich but cries and acts like his life is hard -Looks like a light skinned gorilla

    I hope DMX puts this lil nigga in his place.

  • ETK

    this has nothin to do with the girl's tattoo. that tattoo was stupid shit, and he had to call out somebody for it(tho I don't really blame the artist who did that). this is still a weird decision for a tat but it's nowhere near the level of having someone's name stamped on your FOREHEAD.. and having to shave your eyebrows and part of your scalp for it

  • Anonymous

    wow, he was crying about the chick with a Drake tattoo on her face? Man, Drake, you's a bitch...

  • Versatile's Social Media Team

    Versatile is a fan of Janet Jackson but you wouldn't catch him having a tatt of her on his back or anyway. Aaliyah may have influenced him but let's get this straight this should not even be news. Males should NOT be gossiping that is a females trait...so we will end out on saying that

    Tennis is a cool sport, whats so gay about hitting a ball across a net? I never got on to how the sport is gay. However, Drake is gay. Its not about the tattoo, its everything about him. SO when he does something like this, hes just gonna get the slam no matter what.

  • Simple like ABC, 123

    Aaliyah > Drake

  • N2DaMusic

    So what people say.. if you have a tattoo of a Woman you're gay? Pussy? Soft? So you judge people by Tattoos! Come on!! Bullshit!! Aaliyah was great!! Maybe she influenced him a lot! I'm not a fan of Drake, but that don't matter. Tattoo's don't make the person!

      So if Aaliyah is his greatest inspiration can we get this dude the fuck off of every hip hop site and leave him in the R&B category? If you're a Drake fan and get tired of us "haters" that would be a great way to stop hearing the slander. He can do whatever gay shit he wants but stop categorizing him as a hip hop artist.

    • bwitz

      You're right. Tattoo's dont make the person. But their actions do and Drakes actions have been mostly bitch. Criticizing tattoo artist for tatting a rappers name someone(doesn't matter where the location is) and then having this surface? He should be embarrassed. Go back to Degrassi, Aubrey.

  • idontlikedrakebut

    how is getting a tat of a woman (An icon to many, Aaliyah) gay? She obviously influenced him and many tat Pac and MJ on themselves as well.

  • D.Scott

    Wait, wait, wait... lol, is this real?

  • bwitz

    How's he come out and say he's gonna, "F*ck up" the guy who tattoo'd 'Drake' on some stupid chick's forehead and then go do this. Common was right. Softer than baby stool. Hypocrite.

    Some black people are so ignorant, what does him playing tennis have to do with anything? So if its not football or basketball is gay. Shut that ignorant shit up already.

    • mac

      No, what's ignorant is the belief that only black people are posting comments on these websites. Your comment has nothing to do with race and everything to do with whats perceived as "manly." Not that I agree, but tennis isn't generally considered a manly sport.

    haha yall hatin for the wrong reasons. niggas got more money then you will ever have. hes spending it how ever the fuck he wants. all this shows is that drizzy likes to stay active and not sit around smoke all damn day. let the nigga be. god damn. yall crazy.

      How do you know that Drake will always have more money than me or anyone else on this site? He aint no billionaire. He's not even worth 50 million, give me a fucking break, my father owns his own medical business producing medical devices for surgery world-wide, he has WAY MORE money than drake. You are the one who will be broke for life, bitch.

    This is what I don't get about this clown, first he does a song requesting his fans to tattoo his name on them as a sign of loyalty and respect. Then he threatens the tattoo artist that makes that possible when a fan takes his advice literally. Now he's gone and just got a tattoo of Aaliyah on his back. Super backpedalling, he might as well have just said "I'm gonna fuck you up whoever who did this but after I get mine done first"
