BFFs 4 life.

After Drake cemented his grime credentials with a Boy Better Know tattoo last October, Skepta has now returned the gesture by getting an OVO owl – the Canadian label’s logo – inked on his body.

The Tottenham MC shared a picture of his new Toronto-made tat on Instagram this morning (August 3), accompanied by the caption: “From Toronto with solid bullet proof love.”

The tattoo is the latest next chapter in the pair’s blossoming transatlantic friendship. Back in February, Drake announced that he had signed to Skepta and brother JME’s BBK collective, which Skepta then confirmed. “We’re putting together an official worldwide BBK label, but we haven’t talked about how it’ll work yet,” said the London MC in May, while clarifying that Drake’s deal is “separate to his existing contracts.”

Skepta released his latest album Konnichiwa in May, with guest spots from Pharrell Williams, Wiley and Novelist alongside the other members of Boy Better Know.
