Drake added some new ink to his face.

Over the weekend, photographer Brent Kore posted a fresh photo of The Boy who appeared to have a brand-new tattoo right above his right eyebrow. Drake got the word "miskeen" inked on his face, and it's sparked some conversations amongst his fans. "Miskeen" stems from the Arabic word مِسْكِين or "miskin," which translates to "poor." It's also a slang word from Toronto's Somali community. According to HipHopNMore, the photo was taken while Drake was attending Canadian TV personality’s Tyrone “T-rex” Edwards’ Nostalgia Party. Fat Joe pulled up to perform and Drizzy made sure he was front-and-center for the rap legend's set.

This isn't the first time the "Evil Ways" rapper got his face tatted. Last year, the Canadian artist got his mother's initials "S.G." inked right under his left eye. "S.G." stands for Sandra Gale. His tattoo artist, who goes by @_n.a.l on IG, posted a video of him tatting the letter "G" on Drake's face.

Drake himself hasn't addressed the tattoo yet. There's no word on when exactly he got the new tat, but it must've been within the past few weeks. His new tat was revealed just days after he delivered his For All The Dogs Scary Hours Edition that holds six new songs including a new collaboration with J. Cole. On the new tracks, Drake doesn't hold back as he fires shots at Joe Budden, Pusha T and others.
