So What Does Drake’s Tattoo Mean?

The word “MISKEEN” has multiple meanings, depending on the context. According to a Torontology thread on Reddit, it’s slang for someone who is not genuine or a civilian. In Habesha culture, it can mean an innocent child who looks sad, unfortunate, or doesn’t know any better.

Miskeen is also the name of a clothing brand out of West Philadelphia, Pa. The apparel brand just recently launched a special limited-edition of Philly sports varsity jackets.
