Legend has it that Pusha T ruined Drake’s reveal with Adidas and set the deal back a few months — then communication was cut f completely. So we had little recourse but to surmise Drake’s expired shoe deal was still a negotiable act. But as midnight, the pendulum has swung to one side. Drake’s suggestive lyrics on Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode” implies he is choosing the Nike swoosh over Adidas originals. This is all the context you’d need: “checks over stripes” alluding to iconic brand trademarks.
“Nothin’ nice (yeah), baguettes in my ice (aww, man)
Jesus Christ (yeah), checks over stripes (yeah)
That’s what I like (yeah), that’s what we like (yeah)”
Even before Drake hinted towards Nike (and it can’t be both unfortunately) he had begun unveiling his OVO/Nike collab, in a series noncryptic Instagram post. Evidently the sneaker contract is something itself, the OVO/Nike deal accounts for business he cut on the side. Drake is meticulous with his wardrobe, so if he wears Nike sweats it invariably means he favors their product, would it not?
Drake is such a market sell that he stands to prit from his style guide. Last week an orange sweater Drake wore during a public outing was so in-demand, fans had to settle for a pre-order submission guide upon discovering the webstore.
Could the Adidas rumors be proven untrue? Did Drake kibosh his deal last minute after Pusha T stole his thunder? Would he reconsider the Jordan Brand or side with Nike on the general front? These are all questions we are narrowly closer to answering.
