Drake's New Hairstyle

You can easily duplicate the hip hop haircut at home with some clippers and a edgers.

Black mens haircuts fades will need the proper barber clippers, trimmers and razor blades.

As you probably were anticipating news from Indiewire announced that Drake was in negotiations to join Eva Green and Susan Sarandon in the cast of Nicholas Jarecki's forthcoming feature film "Arbitrage.".

However Drake decided not to take the part starring in the movie but instead plans to focus on his sophomore album entitled Take Care.

How to Get Drake's Shadow Fade Haircut

Others have relatives or family members who know how to do hair in the home.

No matter how they get their hair cut one thing is for sure the right barber tools are needed to get the clean finished look.

Drake the rapper has a shadow fade and that means his hair is longer at the top of his head and then gradually gets lighter and shorter as it reaches the nape of his neck.

The sharp lineup is what makes the haircut live and it takes a skilled stylist to edge it up so that it is straight. The trick is in the razors and trimmers for a smooth blend of hair from top to bottom.

Black mens haircuts have stayed pretty much the same over the years and include many styles such as the dark ceaser, bald fade, temp fade and the afro temp.

You will want to first start with a clean head then the trimmng and shaping starts from the crown of the head the sides and temples to the nape of the neck.

The overall look is then dusted off and oiled down for shine.

Shadow Fade Haircut

You can ask for a low taper haircut or a low fade haircut they are pretty much the same with a few differences mainly with the side burns fading to a lighter hair shade.

Taper is when you just get the sideburns and the neck shorter than the rest of your hair, whereas a fade is usually done all over from top to tip.

The barber must use 3 to 8 guards for a high taper fade to get that gradual smooth look.

Beard and curly hair

Now you can see the smooth rapper sporting a new look. He has grown his hair out longer and it is nice and curly.

Plus he is looking scruffy with a beard that is starting to grow in a distinguished shadow on his face.

It appears that drizzy is going for a more mature grown up look . The smooth baby face is gone but who knows for how long.

He said the look was for his upcoming movie role in Arbitrage which he later decided not to do so he could drop his new album faster.

Drakes follow-up Release Album "Take Care"

All drizzy fans are patiently waiting for his new album that is already getting mainstream buzz due to some leaked tracks hitting the internet.

If you like slow jams then you will definitely like the new single called "marvin's room". You can buy the single now and the album will be out just in time for winter.

He has just received an allstar award from Hall David Starlight and did a concert at the hot 97 summer jam with lil wayne.

As one of musics brightest stars Drake is on his way to take over the Hip Hop Game.

Drake to appear on Lil Waynes Tha Carter IV

The two famous rappers are doing a joint album together, the young money team plan on dominating the hip hop game with great music.

Drake has also announced plans to work with indie rock darlings The xx and Florence and the Machine.

Is Drake and Nicki Minaj getting married?

The two collaborated on the up all night single are working together but according to twitter not married.

Nicki and Drake at NYC’s Fashion’s Night Out

The king and queen of hip hop shut it down and caused a whole bunch of fans to go nuts for real, with nicki hanging out at YSL shopping for the latest hot Versace fashion and Drizzy spinning beats as a DJ in NYC.

Drake acting with Al Pacino

Drake is no stranger to acting he played the character Jimmy Brooks on the Canadian Show Degrassi the next generation tv series will now be opposite pacino in the thriller arbitrage.

The thank me later rapper will show his fans that he has more to offer than being a top selling recording artist.

In the movie the financial thriller will have other famous actors such as Susan Sarandon and Eva Green which will help groom him and further develop his career in film.

Drake earns big when he performs at private party

Being a famous rapper has its perks especially when you can make $250,000 in one night. This is what happened when the "thank me later" hip hop star performed at a bar mitzvah where Kanye West originally was supposed to play but he demanded too much money and was turned down.

The four seasons in New York is where Jeff Zucker hired Drake to perform for his son's party. The former NBC Universal  CEO left the station after they were acquired by Comcast. This could be a big break for Drake who started out acting on television. We may be seeing him in some future network shows.
