Drake was spotted by a photographer at Tyrone "T-rex" Edwards' Nostalgia Party. On November 18th, Brent Kore captured an image of the rapper showcasing his new tattoo. The snap quickly circulated among fans on Instagram after Kore posted it.

The rapper's new tattoo reads "Miskeen", derived from the Arabic word "miskin". The word translates to poor or unhappy. According to the University of Toronto Magazine, in the vernacular of Drake's home city, it signifies a "pitiful person or situation". The tattoo is located on Drake's left eyebrow arch. As yet, Drake has not offered any commentsabout his new tattoo.

Fans are perplexed by Drake's decision, given that "'Miskeen' is an Arabic term denoting someone poor or hopeless. The guy lives in a $150 million residence", "What could have prompted him to do this?", "I wish this was a joke".
