Drake has cheekily commemorated beating a chart record previously held by The Beatles with a new tattoo.

Last year, the God’s Plan rapper surpassed the British band’s record for the most songs simultaneously listed in America’s Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10, with seven tracks from his 2018 album Scorpion.

In October, Drake secured 12 tracks on the Hot 100’s Top 10 in a calendar year, surpassing The Beatles’ record of 11, and this June, he passed the Fab Four to claim the second-most Hot 100 Top 10s ever, following Madonna.

The Canadian star has already marked the record-breaking feat in his music, and it appears he has now also celebrated the achievement in a more permanent way.

New pictures posted of Drake on social media showed him with new body art on his left forearm, and the rapper’s official fan account @WordOnRd shared images with the caption, “Drake has a tattoo of himself in front of The Beatles on his arm.”

The black and white tattoo is inspired by the band’s famous 1969 Abbey Road album cover, which shows John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr walking in a line at a pedestrian crossing. In the tattoo, Drake has been added as a fifth figure, who is seen standing in front of The Beatles and waving at them.

The tattoo had a mixed response on social media, with some Drake fans finding the new ink funny, and others commenting, “I love Drake but that’s so tacky and cocky lmfao (laughing my f**king a*s off) it’s not that deep,” and “Drake tats are like a college students laptop with stickers all over (sic).”

Drake had previously celebrated beating The Beatles’ record in his rap on Meek Mill’s track Going Bad, which featured the lyrics: “I got more slaps than The Beatles.”

His other tattoos include homages to Aaliyah, Sade, Lil Wayne, and Denzel Washington.

The trustees of slain rapper XXXTentacion’s estate are reportedly looking to release branded merchandise.

Hip-hop star XXXTentacion, real name Jahseh Onfroy, was shot and killed in his home state of Florida on 18 June (18), while sitting in his car outside of a motorcycle dealership.

Since his untimely death, the 20-year-old’s track Sad! has soared up to the top of the U.S. charts, and his mother has launched a charitable foundation in the late rapper’s name. And now it looks like fans will also be able to soon get their hands on XXXTentacion branded clothing too.

According to TMZ, his camp has applied for a trademark to put the performer’s name on a line of streetwear, including jerseys, jackets, hats, T-shirts, sweats, collared shirts and hoodies.

The application was reportedly filed at the end of June, not long after XXXTentacion was fatally wounded.

Police have so far arrested one person in connection to the murder, which they believe to have been an armed robbery.

In his will, XXXTentacion named his mother Cleopatra and brother Aiden as the sole beneficiaries of his estate.

The star’s future child, that his girlfriend at the time of his death is pregnant with, was not named in the will as the document was written prior to the pregnancy.

Stars including Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill have publicly paid tribute to the late rapper since his death.
