With NBA season beginning on Oct. 27, it’s only right that Drake finally release OVO’s alternate version of the Toronto Raptors jersey.
The jersey stays close to its OVO sentiments: it’s predominantly blacked out, with white lettering and gold accents throughout. Fans will remember that the 6 God debuted the jersey at OVO Fest, thought it was overshadowed by the “Free Meek Mill” shirt he later wore to taunt the crowd.
Detailed pictures of the jersey were premiered on the OVO crew’s personally-curated blog, October’s Very Own.

Joseph is a Toronto-born basketball player who won a championship with the San Antonio Spurs in 2014, and recently signed to the Raptors in the offseason. As methodical as Drake is, it’s not hard to remember the name-drop in the first Meek Mill ether “Charged Up,” where he rapped, “I get a ring and I bring it home like I’m Corey Joe.”
