Drake Reaches Peak-Drake With Emoji Tattoo

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Drake is many things: Canadian rapper. Cardigan-wearer. Degrassi alum. Courtside lint roller. And now that Mark Mahoney of Shamrock Social Club in Hollywood has branded Drake's forearm with the prayer hands emoji (or high five emoji, but who uses it like that?), he'll forever be a guy with a #blessed emoji tattoo. Combined with the "6" and the quote, "Everything Happens For A Reason Sweet Thing," the emoji supposedly represents his new song/name 6 God, officially making this the most Drake of all things. It's Drake squared. Drake to the second power of Drake. The Drake-iest.
