Drake announces Nike partnership

By Connor Murphy,

Rapper Drake has announced that he and Nike have partnered up for the rapper to design for the company. This following rapper Kanye West’s recent dispute and severance with Nike after West took shots at the company during a recent concert in Portland, Oregon.

Billboard reported Drake made the announcement December 3 during the Portland, Ore. stop of his Would You Like a Tour. Drake stated, “Today also happens to be one of the best days of my life. So today, I came to Portland and officially became inducted into the Team Jordan family.”

Both parties seem to be happy with the deal, with Michael Jordan confirming the next morning through Twitter, “He's home. Welcome the newest member of #TeamJordan: @Drake.”

Drake is already releasing images of some of his designs via Instagram.

Fashion designing isn’t uncharted territory for the Toronto native, as he’s consulted for the NBA Toronto Raptors, as well as released his own clothing line, Very Own.
