"This is so cocky and childish."
Drake just got a new tattoo and it's, erm, very different. The 'Money In The Grave' rapper had The Beatles' iconic Abbey Road photo inked on his left arm and pretty much everyone hates it.
The famous image shows John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison walking across a zebra crossing on Abbey Road, London. The picture was taken by Ian MacMillan on 8 August 1969 and was used for the cover of The Beatles' 11th album, Abbey Road.

Drake – who has tattoos of his son Adonis, Lil Wayne and singer Sade – put his own creative spin on the Abbey Road scene, though, and added himself waving back at the legendary rock band as he walks off in front of them.
If you're wondering when Drake became such a huge Beatles fan, you're not alone. But, the reason behind the new ink isn't quite a tribute to their legacy.
Drake recently broke The Beatles' record of most songs simultaneously listed in the Billboard Hot 100's Top 10. Of course, it was only right that he marks the milestone with a tattoo…right?
He also shouts out the band in Meek Mill's song 'Going Bad'. He raps the verse: "I got more slaps than The Beatles."
Alas, it appears Drake's fans weren't too fond of his latest inking, which some found a little too "cocky".
the beatles did what they did in 7 years (drake has been in the game 11 years) with no social media advertising and STILL have a lasting impact on the music industry 56 years later.. let’s see what drake is in 56 years. but despite that, this is so cocky and childish. https://t.co/0jBi0ncdDw— ♱ (@ilibabeee) August 10, 2019
does drake not understand that the Beatles LEGIT had no social media and still did what they did? do you know how hard it was to break through back then and gain international recognition. Annoying ass https://t.co/QjpvNN4oFY— tal (@bohemianIou) August 11, 2019

In no realm of the universe, will Drake ever live up to the influential phenomenon that was The Beatles.
Sit the fuck down, Aubrey. You aggorant douche.
