There’s a newly viral photo of Drake wearing blackface.
The photo is from 2008 and taken for a fashion photoshoot.
The rapper Pusha T, who’s feuding with Drake, revived it for the cover of his diss track “The Story of Adidon,” where he says Drake has a secret child and is insecure about his blackness.
Some people are upset with Drake for wearing blackface, others are more forgiving.

 

In 2008, Drake appeared in blackface in a photoshoot for the Canadian fashion label Too Black Guys. The photos, taken by David Leyes, were for a line released that year called Jim Crow Couture, which was meant to be a form of artistic criticism on the Jim Crow era of American history.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
