Drake has shared a photo of the unusual Halloween costume he chose to wear this year.

Instead of wearing a zombie or vampire outfit, Drake dressed as Kanye West, covering his face with a gold mask similar to the one West has been wearing on 'The Yeezus Tour'. Drake completed his West-style ensemble with applique jeans and a blue eagle vest top by Maison Martin Margiela, the fashion house that designed West's entire wardrobe for 'The Yeezus Tour'.

Posting the photo on Instagram, Drake branded himself "#LightSkinYeezus" and saluted his fellow rapper with two other hashtags: #IconicShit and #AllPraiseToTheGenius.Meanwhile, West has been forced to postpone the remaining dates on 'The Yeezus Tour' after vital stage equipment was destroyed in a truck crash. "As a result of this event, it is impossible to put on the show and 'The Yeezus Tour' will be postponed until these essential pieces can be reengineered and re-fabricated," a statement explained.

'Then Yeezus' Tour' is West's first solo tour in five years and began in Seattle, Washington on October 19. The stage at the 17,500-capacity Key Arena was partly covered by a giant mountain from which West delivered several raps. At one point, West was joined onstage by a Jesus Christ lookalike, and for several tracks he was accompanied by a troupe of backing dancers. The tour had been scheduled to run until December 7, taking in 35 shows across North America.

Meanwhile, Drake has recently announced a UK arena tour for next March (2014). The tour, which was quickly expanded from eight to 11 dates, will culminate with a trio of huge shows at London's O2 Arena. Support at all dates will come from The Weeknd.
