Drake has announced that soon fans will be able to wear a touch of Drizzy on their feet.
The rapper will be collaborating with Nike's Michael Jordan brand to create Air Jordan sneakers. Drake announced the news during a stop on his Would You Like a Tour? in Portland, Oregon, where Nike is based.
"Growing up I'm sure we all idolized this guy, " Drake told the crowd according to AllHipHop. "He goes by the name of Michael Jordan. So today I came to Portland, and I officially became inducted into the Team Jordan family."
Yesterday Drake uploaded four different pictures of OVO Air Jordans onto his Instagram page.
"OVO Stingray 12's Sample Pack #LaFamilia, " reads one caption.
The other photos show different models of Drake's spin on Jordans with captions reading "Portland #23, " "OVO Stingray 10's Sample Pack" and simply "OVO."
The "champagnepapi" has been causing quite a stir with his Instagram page lately.
Yesterday, the rapper may have uploaded a preview of a new track featuring the late Aaliyah. In an upload captioned "24 HOURS ON THIS BUS, " various snippets of people and items on what appears to be Drake's Would You Like a Tour? bus are seen. Meanwhile, a soulful Drake jam highlighted with light vocals sounding very similar to Aaliyah play in the background.
This could be one of the singles that Drake told fans he would release this year, but neither the song title, a full version, nor a release date have been revealed.
Drake is a big fan of the "More Than a Woman" singer who died in 2001 at the age of 22. According to AllHipHop, the rapper has a tattoo of Aaliyah on his back. In 2012, Drake appeared on an unreleased Aaliyah song titled "Enough Said." He has also expressed interest in making another Aaliyah album with the help of producer Noah "40" Shebib. The project has yet to develop.
