Skepta Has Cemented His And Drake’s Bromance With A New Tattoo

We already knew that Skepta and Drake got on well. The Tottenham grime star and the Canadian rapper have been mates for a while now, and publicly they’ve paid tribute to one another’s work several times. Even just in recent memory there are loads of examples. Skepta sampled Drake’s ‘truss me daddy’ on 2015 single ‘Shutdown’, the song for which Drake later brought Skepta out at Wireless Festival in July 2015. Later Skepta posted a picture of Drake paying tribute to his label by sporting a BBK tattoo.

More than music. OVO BBK family for Life.

Then, back in February 2016 Drake announced he’d signed to Skepta’s BBK label with the below image.

“The first Canadian signed to BBK,” he wrote in the caption to the above photo, taken at a Section Boyz gig after the BRIT Awards. “Big up my brudda @skeptagram for life yeah. And my section gunners too.”At the same time, Skepta posted a picture of this t-shirt, which combines the logos of the two: BBK and the owl of Drake’s label, OVO Sound.

This morning, Skepta finally returned the gesture Drake made last year by getting a tattoo of his label logo. He’s just shared a picture of his new tattoo: the logo of Drake’s OVO owl:
