Back in October 2015, Drake got a BKK tattoo — that's Skepta's record label. It made his love affair with Grime more than official, though it's since been displaced a little by his newfound obsession with dancehall. Nevertheless, the pair are very close. Shortly after the inking, Drake tweeted that he was "the first Canadian signed to BBK." For his part, Skepta's made it clear he ships Riri and Drizzy.

We didn't get any new music today, we did hear of something else which solidifies the depth of their partnership: Skepta got an OVO tattoo. Now, they've finally both got tattoos of the other's label. "From Toronto with solid bullet proof love," Skepta wrote as he debuted it on Instagram. While at the tattoo studio, Skepta also got "Forever" written across his neck. Drake reposted a shot of that tattoo, so we're guessing he approves and their love runs deep.
