Drake has been supporting the UK and the grime scene in general for the past year or so, showcasing his appreciation for Skepta and his Boy Better Know crew/label in a number of songs and collaborations. Seemingly friends with everyone who really matters right now, Drake has taken his fandom to the next level and has gotten a BBK tattoo on his shoulder. Proudly debuted on Skepta’s own Instagram, Skepta shared a picture of Drake’s minimal new ink alongside a short message: “More than music. OVO BBK family for Life.”
The mutual appreciation across both crews and artists has been prominently felt across both Skepta and Drake’s music ever since Drake released If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late earlier this year, from references all the way to samples, most notably on Skepta’s “Shutdown.” Now we know that Drake isn’t just repping Boy Better Know to cash-in on what’s currently hot, even though that’s been part of his approach for a while now.
It’s clear that Drake’s love for grime is for life, with him expressing his love for the scene all the way back in 2011, but this brings up a very important question: Will Skepta get an OVO tattoo? I mean, he pretty much has to now, right?
