Looks like Johnny Manziel is even closer to rapper Drake than some of us realized.
We knew that Manziel was a big Drake fan, but he made his allegiance to the Canadian rapper permanent by getting “OVO” tattooed on his inner wright wrist this offseason. OVO stands for “October’s Very Own,” which is Drake’s birthday month and the name of his recording label.
The new wrist tattoo was visible on Saturday during Texas A&M’s 52-31 season-opening win against Rice.
Manziel has been wearing Drake’s OVO gear for several months and called meeting the rapper the highlight of his offseason. When he returned to Twitter in April after a brief self-imposed ban, he did so by quoting Drake lyrics. He also says he learned the most from Drake and felt he related most closely to the rapper during his tumultuous offseason.
The relationship goes two ways; Drake gave Manziel props for the way he handled SEC Media Day in August.
