Drake Pays Homage to Toronto with New Tattoo

It’s no secret that Toronto-born Drake loves the city he was raised in. He constantly visits his hometown and mentions the city in many of his songs.

The 25-year-old performer took his love for Toronto a step further recently by getting a tattoo of “416” (a Toronto area code). A photo of Drake’s new tattoo appeared on his official fan site, Word on the Road.

The Canadian rapper is set to perform at his annual Ovo Fest this Sunday, which takes place every summer at Toronto’s Molson Amphitheatre. The event has become known for its surprise, big-name guests; Jay-Z, Eminem and Stevie Wonder have all performed at the concert.

Rumour has it Drake might debut a new track featuring vocals from Aaliyah, the well-known R&B singer who died in an airplane accident in 2001. The rapper revealed back in March that he was working on a project related to Aaliyah.

“I have some great Aaliyah news coming soon,” he said while on the Tim Westwood radio show. “Just some special things. Great things for music, period.”
