Drake Ends Beef With Conscience-Free Tattoo Artist


In a late December interview, Drake was asked to address the fact that a young lady got his name tattooed on her face in giant block letters. The Young Money rapper at first chose his words carefully to avoid insulting a person who was willing to disfigure herself in his honor, but he closed his comments by slamming the tattoo artist who did the piece, calling him “a fucking asshole.” But now Drake has reportedly opted to end this strange beef (so he can focus on his more pressing disagreement with Common? Weak beef sauce). As Karen Civil’s blog points out, the artist, Kevin Campbell from Los Angeles’ Will Rise, is saying it’s all good over Twitter.

Campbell tweeted at Drake this week, writing, “Nice talking to you buddy, glad everything’s cleared up. It’s good that something positive came out of this whole fiasco. Stay up.” Then he announced to the world in a fresh tweet, “Drake beef officially squashed… Everybody can now move on. Only positivity from here on out.” It’s unclear whether Drake actually met up with Campbell in person or they spoke over the phone (or the web), however Civil did note Drake stopped by Will Rise in mid-January. At the time, Campbell said Drizzy stayed in the car and “sent in his huge security dude.”
