Drake’s ability to deliver rhymes might only be surpassed by one other skill – his penchant for well-timed Instagram posts. With rumors of the 6-God leaving Jordan Brand for adidas continuing its circulation, the man himself may have made it unofficially official with his latest upload – a photo of him wearing some three-striped track pants. It is now clear that his affiliation with Jordan Brand has come to an end – it’s just a matter of time before the brand make the announcement themselves.
The next part of this conversation is – will Drake even help adidas? The rap star is looking for more creative control and possibly a lot more SKUs under his name. With Jordan Brand, he only had a handful of collaborative releases and a limited run of apparel – certainly not enough to keep him in the conversation on a regular basis. The fact is, Drake’s style of dress is much more relatable than any other celebrity/entertainer as he seems far more comfortable in casual sweats and Stone Island jackets than anything else. For now, we’ll have to wait for adidas and/or Drake to make the official announcement, but after this photo, do we even need it?
