Drake decided to speak about the matter and explained why he was looking like that in the photo. He explained that the photo was taken in 2007 when he was an actor and he was working with another Black actor from Sudan. He acted as a person with a darker complexion as he wanted to show how Black people were having a hard time in auditions. They were finding it hard to get roles as they were stereotyped.
It is still not clear if Drake will be doing another diss track because of this.
