While his relationship status with Common still hangs in the balance, Drake has managed to squash another ongoing beef with a Los Angeles tattoo artist. Drizzy was upset with Kevin Campbell, the Southern California artist who inked the rapper’s name on a fan’s forehead. According to Campbell’s Twitter page, he and the Toronto native are on good terms. “Drake beef officially squashed…Everybody can now move on. Only positivity from here on out,” he tweeted.
Campbell took the peace treaty one step further by sending out a sugary tweet to Drake, further solidifying the end of their disagreement. “@drake Nice talking to you buddy,” he wrote. “Glad everything’s cleared up. It’s good that something positive came out of this whole fiasco. Stay up.” The 25-year-old has yet to respond but from the looks of it, Campbell has gotten over the fact that Drake allegedly sent a security guard to his tattoo shop for a confrontation, while he waited in the car.
When he first heard about the fan getting his name permanently etched on her body, Drake was pretty upset. “I want to meet her and understand what happened,” he said in an interview with LA’s Power 106 radio station. “The guy who tatted is a f—ing a–hole though, I will tell you that. I don’t f— with that guy. F— you to that tat artist by the way. And you should lose your job and should never do tattoos again. If I ever see you, I’m a f— you up. But real s— though, I really like…I want to talk to this girl and understand it all. It’s surreal.”
Interestingly enough, Drake has a portrait of late singer Aaliyah tattooed on his back, so he should be able to slightly relate to the fan’s dedication. Either way, we’re still waiting to see if he’s able to dismantle his on-again, off-again Common issues with such ease.
