Grammy Award winning rapper Drake is expanding his brand outside of music. The Canadian-rapper is getting into the sneaker business. During his recent tour stop in Portland, Oregon which is where Nike’s headquarters is located, the YMCMB multi-platinum rapper announced that he’s now apart of the Jordan Brand. See the video on YouTube.

Details of Drake’s deal with the Jordan Brand isn’t yet available at the time of the press, but he did take to his Instagram and showed off some of the Air Jordan 10 and 12 Stingray packs. Both groups have white and black pairs with a translucent sole showing off his OVO logo.

Are you copping a pair when they hit Jordan retailers?

Rumor Alert: Drake Takes Diddy’s Girl Cassie?

drakefrenchcassie

Did Drake take Diddy’s girl Cassie? The rumor mill is buzzing and word in the entertainment industry is that Cassie is allegedly signed to Drake’s OVO. Last December, I reported that Drake took his October Very Own’s label over to Warner Bros Records for distribution. The label is spearheaded by Drake and his partners Oliver El-Khatib and Noah “40” Shebib. Other acts on the OVO include PartyNextDoor and Majid Jordan.

According to celebrity blogger Necole Bitchie via an upcoming Mediabase newsletter: 

R&B singer and occasional model Cassie, who had one of the biggest 2006 rhythm-crossover hits with the minimal electro Ryan Leslie produced “Me & U” and has since then been signed under Sean Diddy Combs exclusive Bad Boy/Interscope distribution partnership, has now inked another deal with Drake and Noah “40″ Shebib’s OVO Sound, their first big signing. Riding high on the release of her new mixtape RockaByeBaby, well-received by fans and critics, Cassie is now preparing for a new single later this year, followed by her sophomore LP next Spring.”

If this rumor is true, do you think this was the right move for Cassie and Drake?

Fall Magazine Cover: Drake For XXL’s 150th September 2013 Issue

Drake_150

To help celebrate XXL’s 150th issue and 16th anniversary, Vanessa gives Drake the September 2013 cover. This also marks Drizzy’s first solo XXL cover. Jay-Z and Master P were the first two rappers to split the cover of the publication’s debut issue. Inside, the Toronto-native talks about his new album, his image, the competition, his success, and much more. This issue hits newsstands on August 20. The YMCMB rapper will release his third album, Nothing Was The Same on September 17. Below are some quotes from Drizzy’s exclusive interview with XXL.

Drake-With-Owl

On the new album:

I remember coming into this year thinking, “How am I going to cut through all these people and shine?” I’ve never been part of a year when so many legends are dropping projects. How am I going to be seen? I’m going to be like the kid waving in the background in the photo with all of his tall relatives. And, I guess, those were my initial thoughts, and not to say that I haven’t enjoyed some of the stuff that has come out this year, but it didn’t pan out the way I thought it was going to. I think I am going for it, to really establish what are murmurs or things being said quietly, “Um, I think that Drake might actually…” On September 17th I want people to be like, “Oh, we were right.”

On his image:

Do I think that if I didn’t have, for lack of a better term, a unique look about me, if I was from somewhere in America and if I hadn’t been on a kids TV show [Degrassi: The Next Generation], would I be as famous? I don’t know, man. Honestly, I don’t think so. I was just some young kid on a TV show. And I haven’t become anything else while I’ve been in this position. It’s not like I got here and was like, “Oh, got to switch up my image.” I don’t wake up nervous. I feel like maybe a lot of these guys do. How old are you, really? What is your background, really? What have you really done in the drug game, in the thug game?

On the competition:

It’s tough for me. That’s a guy I can’t pretend not to like. He’s the guy to me, in a lot of ways. That’s Kanye West. But I’m also here to be the best. I’m here to surpass. I’m here to outdo. I’m ready for whatever with anybody.

On his success: 

I get Jewish people coming up to me proud like, “Mazel Tov, bro. Come to my house for Shabbat dinner.”
