Drake Announces JORDAN BRAND Deal
Dec 04 | by Natasha
Drake is the newest member of the Team Jordan
family. Check out a preview of his new sneakers as he brings Team OVO
to one of the most iconic sports brands in the game.
Plus, Pharrell is letting filks know about his next big moves....
Out with the Yeezys, in with the OVO. Drake just signed a deal to
design sneakers (and possibly other athletic gear) for the Jordan
Brand. He joins Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin , Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, DJ Quick and plenty more.
After braving a 28 hour ride through a snowstorm just to make sure he
arrived to his Portland 'Would You Like A Tour' show on time, Drizzy
gave fans a big announcement as he kicked off his concert.
He told the crowd:
"Today also happens to be one of the best days of my
life. Growing up, we all idolized this guy, who goes by the name of
Michael Jordan. So today, I came to Portland and I officially became
inducted into the Team Jordan family. And it is a family, and I don't
take that word lightly. "
And the love is mutual. The Jordan Brand tweeted words of welcome:
He's home. Welcome the newest member of #TeamJordan: @Drake
