Drake leaving Jordan for adidas? Rumor has it…
At this point my sneaker blogging career, I try to say away from a lot of rumors.
One of the main reasons is it’s so easy to make up rumors with social media. Everyone has a platform now, for better or worse. People with a few followers can literally tweet or post anything, and people will run with it.
That said, this is a big rumor. Nah, this is a massive rumor! I’m not going to lie to y’all and tell you my sources informed TSG about this topic because they didn’t. According to Sole Collector, their sources say Drake is in talks with adidas.
Also, Nick DePaula also confirmed this news. To be exact DePaula said: “Can confirm that Drake and his team are far along in negotiations with adidas on a comprehensive endorsement deal.”
This is starting to sound more and more like a fact, and not a rumor.
Word is Drake is unhappy with this partnership with Jordan Brand. This is all very interesting if true. Nike did a lot with Kendrick Lamar during All Star Weekend, but Drake was missing in action.
The only presence he had was his two OVO Air Jordan 8s, but in retrospect, you would think Drake and Jordan would’ve put more energy into the launch of his latest OVO Jordan collection.
Keep in mind, this is just my thoughts as consider the rumor at hand.
Of course adidas or Jordan Brand has yet to confirm or deny these rumors. As always, stay tuned for more info as we should get confirmation on this news sooner than later.
All I can say is this is going to be crazy if true. Kanye, Pharrell and Drizzy on the same team. Scary!
If true, do you think Drake should leave Jumpman?
