It appears the Toronto Raptors and ‘rapper’ Drake are taking their partnership relatively serious.
A few months ago, we were informed that Drake took a ‘job’ as the Raptors ‘global ambassador’ and even as recently as a few weeks ago, we were told the franchise was looking into changing their team colors to Drake’s famous black and gold.
Whether or not that actually happens remains to be seen, but what will be happening on January 11th is ‘Drake Night’, an evening where Drake will be in attendance for the Toronto Raptors game when they host the Brooklyn Nets.
Drake will be the game DJ, spinning on the 1′s and 2′s and will also be the headline promotion for the evening which will include giving away OVO inspired t-shirts.
For an actual game giveaway, those are pretty sweet. Often times you’ll get a cheaply made t-shirt featuring the logos of three or four sponsors – a shirt you’d never wear again. But those threads actually look halfway decent. Not bad – not bad at all.
