Hot Shots: Drake Tributes Aaliyah…With A Tattoo

Aaliyah‘s untimely death aged 22 in 2001 left the Urban community in shock. And while the masses have since coped with the loss by celebrating her legacy, Hip-Hop heavyweight Drake has opted to immortalise the singer on his body.

Spotted playing tennis with basketball star Carmelo Anthony, Drizzy (in the white headband) inadvertently revealed his latest ink work. Check it out after the jump…

Peep his back…

WOW. Although, his love for Ms. Houghton isn’t new news.

In an open letter to the late starlet, the Canadian recently wrote:

“Dear Dana,” Drake begins, referring to the singer by 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.”

Randomness: Drake recently lashed out at the tattoo artist who inked his name on a fan’s forehead.

    Aaliyah’s features are stunning gosh and she was only just blossomin into the full bloom of her beauty. RIP babygirl

    Drake is settin his own path. by now yall should know he’s not the 2nd comin of your conventional “hiphop heavyweight”. the tattoo is a bit too much if u ask me but hey, thats just me. i think im still reeling from my indulgence

    I LOVE Aaliyah and his tributes to her are the only reason why I even remember Drake’s name, he helps to keep her memory and legacy alive…

    And of course the tatoo is an OTT decision, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t expect any OTT stuff from him.He probably had a crush on her :wink:

    I mean, who really cares? People get tattoos of icons all the time like Biggie, Pac, Marilyn Monroe, etc. This is no different. She’s obviously “a positive motivating force” within his life when it comes through his music, so chill. Let it be. And it’s not like he got her tattooed on his damn forehead. That would be a different story lol.

    He got a tattoo of Aaliyah on his f*cking back .

    I mean, yes we all miss her but let’s be clear she was not a legend already when she passed away so … a tattoo of her face though? And we heard about this days only after Timbaland confessed he was in love with her. What part of the game is this?

    I don’t care what nobody says, AUBREY IS ABSOLUTELY NOT A SANE PERSON. This morosity around his persona, the fact that he loves every girl he meets (Rihanna, Nicki, Serena) including a dead person (Aaliyah), something smells creepy around him.

    Like I heard people say, don’t get caught up in a n*gga moment, Drake. You’re chasing waterfalls, you’re playing with fire. This is not going to end well.

    Uh….no. No. No. N-O. No. I think people make too much of Aaliyah to be honest, she was awesome but…yeah, not the end all-be all. As for this, straight foolishness.

    He didn’t know her. A tattoo is a creepy way to remember someone, ESPECIALLY a face tat and on his back…rolls eyes.

    I used to have a crush on her in my teen days, to me she was one of the most beautiful women in the world. A lots celebrities tributes her idols with a tattoo, Megan Fox have a tattoo of Marilyn Monroe, i have a crush on her too oh! i still have a crush on her, she was the beauty in person.

    Aaliyah was one of the most beautiful girls to come out into the industry and she still is the most beautiful…

    Drake is just LAME…I don’t use him there is just something about him that just robs me the wrong way.

    And Aaliyah is a RNB Legend please let’s not come for her legacy the girl died way to young she just began and no one knows what she could have done if she was still with is

    R.I.P Baby girl

    Drake is still lame to me

    Awww That Is Cute, I Would Rather Him IDOLIZE Aaliyah (Someone With ACTUAL Talent) Than Gimmick Minaj And Rihanna !

    To The People That Say Aaliyah Wasn’t A “Legend” Well She Is One To The Urban Community, She Is Called The Princess Of R&B Or The QUEEN Of URBAN Pop For Nothing So Have A Seat!

    Megan Fox never met Marilyn Monroe. Alot of people got MJ tattoos (especially celebrities), and they they never met him, or probably didn;t even know he existed.

    Now all he needs to do is get a portrait of Rihanna on his d!ck.

    His d!ck wants RiRi, but his heart wants Aaliyah.

    i know i might be late on this post lol but you young bums need to quit throwing shade at greatness its the same thing u do to kim just because nicki is current.. obviously Aaliyah isnt here anymore so she isnt making music to stay relevant but too say she want that big or didnt have that big an impact is baseless claims..everybody acts like beyonce is the pinnacle of success but she still hasnt sold as many worldwide records as Aaliyah (in her solo career)with all those grammies yall love to talk about :)
