Drake has absolutely dominated music charts and has even surpassed The Beatles in chart-topping songs.

The 6ix god got a tattoo in tribute to his achievement, slightly mocking the iconic band and their Abbey Road album cover.

The rapper has multiple tribute tattoos at this point including homages to some of his idols including Lil Wayne, Denzel Washington, Aaliyah and Sade.

His latest depicts the four Beatles in their Abbey Road walking pose with a fifth figure (presumably himself) walking ahead of them with his hand waving.

Drake famously spit the line “got more slaps than the Beatles” on his guest spot on Meek Mill’s “Going Bad.”

Some keen fans spotted the new ink as he brought back his OVO Fest to Toronto this past week and took photos with his many guests and the Raptors’ Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy.

After dropping Scorpion in June 2018, Drizzy surpassed the Fab Four’s record for most songs simultaneously in the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10. Drake landed seven tracks where the Beatles record of five stood since 1964.

In October of the same year, Drake landed 12 songs on the Hot 100’s Top 10 in a calendar year, passing the Beatles’ record of 11, also set in 1964.

This past June, he beat the British band’s claim to the second-most Hot 100 Top 10s ever. Drake has 35 just behind Madonna’s 38.
