Drake posted a picture of himself wearing an old LeBron James jersey from James’ high school, St. Vincent-St. Mary, with a clover emoji for the caption, but that’s not all.
In the picture you can see some of his tattoos, but two of them on his left arm in particular caught the eye of some people.
They’re hard to make out without zooming in, but when you do they’re pretty clear. Thanks @JovanBuha for doing the leg work.
According to HotNewHipHop, One is the number “35” with “Snipe” under it and another the number “30” and apparently it says “Gifted” under it.
Now if you don’t know basketball all that much, “35” is Kevin Durant’s jersey number as well as “30” is Stephen Curry’s number. Both of the tattoos are in the very same font that the Golden State Warriors use on their jerseys so it’s pretty obvious who he got the tattoos in honor of. Below is an old pic Drake shared that gives you a little bit clearer look.
Drake is known for throwing some lines in his raps about his favorite basketball players but this is quite extreme.
Do you think Drake went over the top with this one or is this just his way of paying homage?
