When Drake debuted his evolution from childhood to manhood in an illustration on the Kadir Nelson-designed cover of his third album, ‘Nothing Was the Same,’ one of the most noticeably detailed aspects of the image is the hairstyles. One cover depicts the rapper as a baby with an afro, while the other artwork showcases the Toronto native with a low fade and deep side part. So what would happen if grown-up Drizzy received a few hair makeovers inspired by the likes of Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Miley Cyrus and more? Here are some remixed album covers showing off the OVO leader’s new look courtesy of TheDrop.fm. Is it “too much” or does he “own it”? You be the judge.
As emo as some of Drake’s raps are, this side-swept bowl cut inspired by Justin Bieber fits his lyrical style.

What if the former ‘Degrassi’ star went the heavy metal route and decided to rage on the mic rather than rap? Then a mohawk would suit him just fine.
When Miley Cyrus debuted her “edgy” twin knots at the MTV Video Music Awards, we thought it only right to spice up Drizzy’s life with the same ‘do.
If Drake opts for a new look, why not go for one inspired by another chart-topping rapper earning big bucks like Macklemore.

Flying in private jets, sipping liquor out of his Grammy award and rubbing elbows with rap’s elite prove Drake likes to engage in activities that bring joy to his life. Blondes really do have more fun.

“I love Nicki Minaj, I told her I’d admit it / I hope one day we get married just to say we f—in’ did it,” the MC raps on ‘Miss Me,’ off his debut album, ‘Thank Me Later.’ We all know that’s not likely to happen, so what’s the next best thing to get close to the head Barb? Wearing her pink wig, of course.

If it wasn’t for Lil Wayne, Drake may not have had the opportunity to have such a successful rap career without his help. So how can he thank him? By donning some dreads to show appreciation.
He started as a baby, so we bring it back to where it all began.
