Drake

breaking news



Drake has a new business partner -- MICHAEL JORDAN -- 'cause the rapper just announced he signed a new shoe deal with Nike and MJ ... and he's fired up about it.

Drake made the announcement during a concert last night in Portland -- which also happens to be where Nike's headquarters are located.

During the show, Drake said, "Today I came to Portland, and I officially became inducted into the Team Jordan family." Drake said it was one of the best days of his life.

The rapper then posted a shot of his special OVO Air Jordans to his Instagram page -- it's unclear when they'll hit the market.

The move comes in the wake of Kanye West revealing that he recently pulled out of a deal with Nike because they wouldn't give him royalties on his shoes.

So far, the terms of Drake's deal with the swoosh have not been released!

If those are the shoes, then Drake's deal is nothing like what Kanye has done or was after. All Drake did was add his name to an existing shoe. Kanye wanted to continue to come up with original creations, like the Air Yeezy's.

Riiighhht "Kanye Pulled out". Nike dumped him because he's a queen.

Too bad he didn't "pull out" of Kimmy. Would have saved their directionally-challenged daughter a lifetime of misery.

Those shoes aren't even an original design, they are simply a re-brand of an existing shoe. Weak.

Hey, Kanye: It pays to be humble. Drake's going to be making big bucks while you are begging the world to believe how great you are. Congrats, Drake!

My Opinion: Miss Kanye didn't pull out of any deal. Nike knew they would not sell. Kanye is a dying brand. He has been kursed.
