The best rapper costume this year goes to… Drake who channeled none other than Yeezus for Halloween. The Toronto rapper’s Kanye-inspired costume included a sparkly mask (similar to Ye’s famous Margiela crystal mask) and a printed tank top bearing an eagle. “I win the backstage costume contest every time#LightSkinYeezus #IAmAGod #IconicSh–#HomeMadeDonda #AllPraiseToTheGenius,” Drizzy shared on Instagram.
“Yeezus” follows in line with Drake’s love of dressing up as his heroes. The rapper revealed in a series of adorable throwback photos that he’s been a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and Batman in the past.
Drake wasn’t the only person to dress up as Mr. West. Former NFL star-turned- morning talk show host Michael Strahan dressed up as normal Kanye, while co-host Kelly Ripa played Kim Kardashian. They even carried a bundle to represent baby North.
Other rappers who got into the Halloween spirit included Fabolous, was downright creepy playing Michael Jackson from the music video “Thriller,” Iggy Azalea as the mean Cruella de Vil from “101 Dalmatians” and Nicki Minaj playing a barely-dressed “Officer Minaj.”
