Drake has been sporting a new look lately, but there's a reason for it. The Young Money rapper has been showing off a baby Afro over the past few weeks, an unusual look for the Toronto native. But in a recent interview, Drizzy explained that he's growing his hair out for an upcoming movie role, most likely for his role in the indie thriller 'Arbitrage.'

"It's partly for a role in a film that I'm doing, so I started it for that reason because I didn't want to be in the movie looking the same, but then as it was growing, I realized how weird my head looks," joked Drake in an interview. "I realized how weird-shaped my head is. And now, it looks a lot better because I have hair. So I think I'll leave it like this for a little bit."

The former 'Degrassi' star has hinted at returning to the big screen over the past few years, most recently making headlines after announcing his involvement in 'Arbitrage.' The film, which also stars Al Pacino, Susan Sarandon and Eva Green, focuses on a hedge fund executive who makes a big mistake while trying to sell his company. Drake is also rumored to be scoring the flick.

Fans won't have to wait to see the 'Fancy' singer's new look. Drake will be performing at this Sunday's Grammy Awards, sharing the stage with Rihanna for a live rendition of their hit 'What's My Name?' He is also nominated for two awards including Best New Artist and Best Rap Album for his debut 'Thank Me Later.'
