Drake is on the receiving end of lots of good news.
The Toronto native is on track to begin a major partnership with the Toronto Raptors. Drake’s role is said to involve him acting as a host, business partner and consultant for the NBA franchise. He’ll also be launching a clothing line in conjunction with the team.
The Raptors are using Jay-Z’s involvement with the Brooklyn Nets as a template for their arrangement with Drake. Hopefully it will give them the publicity boost they need.
In other Drake news, he’s projected to take the Billboard No. 1 album spot this week with his latest album Nothing Was The Same. His first week album sales figures will give him the second-largest debut of the year behind Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience.
