Kanye parts ways with the multinational footwear cooperation, Drake steps in and announces a new partnership with Jordan brand.
During his tour stop in Portland, Oregon (home of Nike’s headquarters), the NWTS rapper announced his latest business venture in front of his fans:
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.
Shortly after the broadcast, Jordan, who has owned a division for Nike since the creation of Air Jordans in ’85, took to Twitter to welcome the Toronto native to the business:
He’s home. Welcome the newest member of [hashtag]TeamJordan, Drake.
Prior to Jordan’s confirmation, Drizzy revealed samples of the OVO edition Air Jordan 10 and 12 Stingray Packs (pictured below).
Congrats. Hopefully this deal pans out better than Mr. West’s former deal.
