Drizzy Drake Joins A$AP Rocky, Lil Yachty and Young Boy Never Broke Again with the Painted Nail Polish Trend


“You only live once: that’s the motto, ni**a, YOLO,” are the infamous lyrics that Drake spitted on his song ‘The Motto,’ and perhaps that’s the perfect mentality to have in order to step outside of your comfort zone and try new things.

The 36-year old Canadian rapper stepped outside of the box with his latest yellow and blue nail polish color that he debut while hosting a Live Kick Stream to promote online Casino Stake on Saturday night.

Drizzy has created quite the controversy from fans and media outlets alike since showcasing his bright nails. However, he isn’t the first to do so as rappers like A$AP Rocky and Lil Yachty have incorporated the nail polish trend into their personal style for quite some time now.

On our Instagram post of the Young Money Entertainment artist , @Septs.very.own commented, “I feel like it’s a dare or something. Cause I can see Drake with a way better mani than that,” while user @love_dove53 expressed, “Nail polish on guys is such a cool look.”

Although Drake kept his manicure simple with solid colors, Rihanna’s beau A$AP Rocky goes all out with his manicures, sometimes coming up with better designs than women. As you can see, A$AP Rocky designs are assorted from everything from the American flag, and fire flames to smiley faces and words like, “YO.”

Also showing us smiley face symbols on their nails was 26-year old rapper Playboi Carti, who showed off his well manicure clear smiley face nails while dining at a restaurant.

Both Lil Yachty and Young Boy Never Broke Again took to their Instagram live stories to show off their nails. Yachty who’s known for getting creative and innovative with his nail designs like A$AP Rocky, consistency challenges the status quo of masculinity, and considering that we’re in 2023 , we should all adapt and embrace it.

Contrary to Yachty’s colorful designs, Young Boy Never Broke Again opted for all black nails that felt very masculine and gave off rock & roll vibes with his skull ring.

Men getting their nails painted has become a common trend amongst rappers in the Hip-Hop industry and we don’t foresee the trend going anywhere anytime soon.

We also believe that freedom of expression comes in all shapes and forms so we respect men who choose to get manicures and paint their nails.

Despite some people being judgmental, and attributing men getting their nails done with their sexual preference, it’s only a matter of time before others join in on the trend and make men getting their nails painted a fashion norm.
