There is probably not a more self-assured person on this planet quite like rap sensation Drake. A former teen actor on the hit series Degrassi, Drake has spent the past 15 years and counting building himself up as one of the greatest entertainers that hip-hop has ever bared witnessed to. He’s amassed the type of fame that makes him seem almost untouchable — an elite within the world of glitz and glam where normal societal rules don’t really matter.
In Drake’s case specifically, he’s spent a good portion of the last few years entering a sort of “soft era” — skin tanned, hair long and apparently now rocking hot pink nail polish.
Photo and video of Drake rocking a fresh set of pink “aura nails” (see above) sent social media into a frenzy over the weekend. The video even sees Drizzy high-pitch singing along to his frenemy Kanye West’s 2004 breakout hit “Through The Wire,” doing his best Chaka Khan impression and further embracing that inner anima.
While some have found ways to display intolerance and even in more unfortunate cases homophobia, majority of reactions to Drake’s viral mani have actually been quite supportive. Some fans aren’t even surprised following similar fanfare over his choice of yellow nail polish earlier this month.
Considering the widespread feeling of acceptance after recently coming off of Pride Month, and looking at how rap peers like Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert and Trippie Redd have each done the same and way more, we think Drake should feel more than valid if he wants fly nails to go with his fresh blowout and princess cut diamonds. Right?
