The announcement comes days after Kanye West parted ways with Nike and coincides with Drake’s Dec. 3 tour stop in Portland, Oregon where Nike headquarters is located. Drake proudly announced his new deal before posting photos from two of their collaborations.
“Today also happens to be one of the best days of my life. Growing up, I’m sure we all idolized this guy, he goes by the name of Michael Jordan. So today, I came to Portland and officially became inducted into the Team Jordan family.”
Jordan confirmed the partnership via Twitter early on Wednesday morning welcoming Drake and simply stating “he’s home.”
As Drake’s dream of partnering up with his childhood idol has come through, Kanye West has steered away from the Nike Brand to join Adidas after he claimed the company failed to offer him decent royalties on his Air Yeezy shoe.
