Drizzy Drake has officially gone from rapper to raptor. The Canadian triple threat has a new feat to add to his impeccable list of talents: global ambassador for the NBA's Toronto Raptors. Not only does the hip-hop mega star get an all-access pass to be a part of the team (his dream come true), he also contributes his keen eye for style and design to the team's apparel. Unfortunately, his opinion was disregarded in the latest development. The Toronto Raptors revealed a new "drake-inspired" logo that wasn't actually approved by Drake.
Shame on them! How dare they cross one of the most powerful and successful artists in the game? They don't know who they are messing with. Drake, who is clearly upset about the affair, was supposed to have say in the new colors (which he wanted to be black and gold) and the new logo for the Canadian team. Shortly after sports columnist, Cathal Kelly, tweeted the new drake-inspired logo, the rapper fired back, saying "actually, this redesign was executed without me." Burn. Sadly (and shadily) Drake deleted the tweet, but thankfully MTV saved it. See the mini twitter war below.
On a more positive note, Drake goes on to add that he is collaborating with athletics clothier, Mitchell & Ness, for a new line of Raptors gear, how exciting! Does this mean the players will be donning newly Drake-designed jerseys next season? What will they look like?
Do you approve of the new logo?
