    Check Out the Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” Drake PE

    It’s been a long time coming for Toronto Raptors fans.

    As the team made their historical NBA Finals debut this post season, all eyes have been on Drake. As you know, the die-hard Raptors fan can be seen the sidelines at every Raptors game, cheering on his home squad. It was only right that the Jordan Brand dedicated a sneaker to both the team and Drake - the team’s global ambassador.

    Utilizing the OG Air Jordan 7 silhouette, the “Raptors” edition is dipped in a black nubuck upper that’s contrasted with “Court Purple” and “University Red” highlights found on the TPU frames and heel guard. Drake’s signature can also be found on the tongue label along with additional Jumpman branding. The midsole is covered in a speckled black and purple combo.

    Check out more photos of the release below. The Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” is available NOW on the Nike SNKRS app and website as well as select retailer for $200 USD.

    We've also compiled photos of some of our favorite Drake moments at Toronto Raptors games.

    Drake & Future Are Dropping A Sequel to “What A Time To Be Alive”

    What a Time to Be Alive - again.

    Drake and Future are teaming up once again to give the and a highly anticipated sequel to their first collaborative project. In-house producer, ATL Jacob, is said to have hinted at this new release by posting a photo of his hard drive with audio files labeled as “FUT X DRA.” 

    Drake and Future’s ‘What a Time to Be Alive’ sequel teased on Instagram<

    If you recall back in April, we started picking up on hints when Drake teased a new project on Instagram while holding up two fingers in a video with the caption: “We gotta took that up. That two.” And Future responded, “It’s already cooked. Top secret.”

    Rumors of a sequel began long before 2018, though - when Future teased an unreleased collaboration with Drake on Snapchat. “What a Time to be Alive” was released in September 2015 - we think it’s about time for part two.

    Drake Surprised With $500K Diamond Jacket

    Famed Toronto tailor, Garrison Bespoke, went all out on a custom sports jacket for Drake.

    The one-of-a-kind piece, which he gifted to Drake during Tuesday’s Raptors game, is covered in 235 HANDSET DIAMONDS - valuing it at a whopping $550K. The jacket itself is made from 100 year old headstock jersey cloth and adorned with lab-grown Diamond Foundry diamonds.

    They say it’s in the details, and Bespoke definitely didn’t miss any - even shaping the diamonds into basketballs!  He also added Drake’s iconic OVO owl into the mix.

    As you know - and have seen on nationally broadcasted Raptors games - Drake is always on the sidelines, rooting for his home team. He’s pretty much become the organization’s “global ambassador.”

    Don't know any famous tailors, but looking to get dripped in diamonds yourself? King Ice offers up an extensive Diamond Collection - both original & collaborative pieces.

    If you recall, Drake made a new partnership with Cargojet - a cargo airline based in Ontario Canada that operates in Canada and internationally. Linking with one of Canada’s biggest stars, the partnership with Drake was inevitable. Over the weekend, Drake and his crew boarded the private plane - rightfully called “Air Drake” - for the first time. The plane comes fully equipped with a personal bedroom, and living room, finished with luxe leather, velvet, hardwood fixtures, carpeting and more.

    Can't quite get your own private jet? You can still look fly in our G650 Jet Necklace, available in silver or gold plating with Grade AAA diamonds.
