When Drake posted a photo online on Instagram that showed the rapper from Toronto without the trademark beard that everyone expects the Internet went wild. Drizzy captioned the post with the comment “Beard making an epic comeback in 2 weeks….only for you [SNL].” The Instagram post was placed online soon after Drake left The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where he made an appearance to talk about his latest album Views as well as other things.
Apparently Drake’s beard was shaved to prepare for his appearance on Saturday Night Live on Saturday May 14, 2016. Many people went on Twitter to voice their displeasure over the shaving, and a lot of fans have said that the clean shaven look does not fit Drizzy well at all. One Twitter user went so far as to post that Drake is no longer Champagne Papi, now he is Four Loko Man instead. It is a sure bet that the beard will be coming back in the near future if the reactions of fans on the Internet have anything influence.
