Drake’s Aaliyah Tattoo : Pass or Fail?

· December 26, 2011

It is no secret that Drake’s a huge fan of late singer Aaliyah but what most of us were in the dark about was that he had her tatted on his back. Drake revealed his artwork of the late great r&b singer while playing tennis with his friends Christmas day on Drizzydrake. He recently dedicated a track to Aaliyah on his latest Thank Me Later album called “Unforgettable”

Last year the Toronto rapper penned a letter to the singer via Rap Radar expressing his love for her.

Dear Dana,

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. Not only was I one of your biggest fans but I was truly in love with you. I loved the way you carried yourself, the way you dressed, the confidence with which you addressed passion and relationships in your music. I said to myself that even if we never met, I wanted a woman in my life just like you. I am pained that we will never get to connect now that music ended up being my career path. But you should know, we all listen to you everyday and we remain inspired and moved by all that you’ve given the world. I hope I make the right life choices so I can end up in heaven where I know you rest your head. I’ll continue to make music in your honor until the day we finally meet. Dinner’s on me!

Love you always and forever,

    STOP CRYING, ALREADY, over an ANGEL that we ALL still Miss… Move the Fuck on…He’s making his (And, then some), Damn!!

  • Mo

    I can see if her knew her,im going with FAIL for a man this tattoo is a little stan-ish

  • MoorFedayeen

    This niggas the epitome of a cream puff, soft as baby cheeks, simp nigga. Tattoos are lame depending on who u are and Drake just ain’t a tatt type of guy. Like you said, he never knew the girl. Fail to the max.

    • Toni-O

      “soft as baby cheeks”??? Homie you need to PAUSE real quick!

      • MoorFedayeen

        Naw my nigga u need a lifelong pause for even letting some Sandusky, fuck sh*t enter yo mind involving babies.

        Drake=Baby thighs. Understand?

        • Shaunyc

          Word… No Sandusky… Lol

        • queso

          Lmfao at baby thighs awww man lol.

        • Shaunyc

          Yo moor… Mto got a post calling young berg “soft as baby thighs” for having a aliyah tat as well… They stealing ur material homey….

          • MoorFedayeen

            That don’t even surprise me. Media Fake Out is the largest urban website in the world because they’re parasites that bite off others. Can’t believe they took my words, word for word though.

            Damn moor they jacked your comments? Nothing is safe around here. I talked to the owner about jacking ANS copy written pics and chopping off the logo so I thought everything was cool.

  • MisterMidas

    Im slowing starting to like Drake less and less….not because of the music, but because of shiit like this. Like has been said, he didnt even know Aaliyah, ALL of us miss her. Honestly, when Pac died I was 17, I have thought many a times about getting Pac tats, but the only thing that kept me from doing it, is that I never even got the chance to meet him. Cause IMO, every rapper after Pac, dont even come close to comparing to him….but thats a whole nother subject. Drake is too gotdamn soft man. I love the nicca’s music, but damn bro…stop it with the crybaby shiit all the time.

      Same here, if you didn’t know the person personally the last thing you need to do is pay tribute to them with a tat. Then again that’s just my personal opinion.

    • Shaunyc

      I aint neva like his soft singin ass

  • realtalkldn

    i dont think a tattoo was necessary, see where hes coming from but nahh. If I’d get any woman tatted on me it’d be my mother

    • http://atlnightspots.com Aaron

      I’d get a tat of my mother and my father.

  • G


  • G 26’s

    I would get a Aaliyah tattoo any day

  • Teddy Rosevelt

    As I said earlier, he should tattoo “SIMP” on his forehead. Gerber baby ass nigga

  • Shaunyc

    He stole her singin style, so why not…

  • http://atlnightspots.com Aaron

    This is getting borderline creepy. The girl has been gone for more than ten years now. It would be different if she died last month or last year. So this is a fail big time but, Da Brat’s michael jackson tattoo was a definite pass.


    Naw, what’s up with the shirtless tennis game..

  • MalleG’s

    I gotta say fail, and for the reason that’s already been stated, he didnt even know her. If he wanted to make a tribute to her, why not dedicate a song to her? Thats what you do nicca, so sing her a song!

    Like @Moor said, Drake AKA “Baby Cheeks”

  • johanneey marlen

    i i like drake and i love aaliyah for sure, but regardless that is stupid as fuck. i think my nigga really think him and aaliyah had a reltionship or she knew him. i was sad when she died to , with the letter it was cute, i liked his letter . but this is really retarded its not like he even ever met her she never new he existed period.! even though i dont like nicki minaj at least he can say oh iknow her, he doest no aaliyah and how is he even sure she would even like him as an artist let alone realtionship wise. THIS IS A COMPLETE FAIL!

  • BigBlackDude

    That nicca like Common but its all good!
