Late last year, Drake announced an upcoming OVO x Raptors collection with Mitchell & Ness and today we get a look at the lookbook before it all goes on sale tomorrow (Friday) morning.
I’m a fan of the old school dino logo and it even being taken a step further with some of the old school type (like the Raptors Basketball practice tee, probably my favorite of the collection.)

I appreciate the consistency of Just Don and the fresh twist on vintage NBA hats. The one hat of the many seen in the video that I really want: that 1991 Bulls Championship hat. Whoo! I remember that one #Classic.
As for the video itself, it’s an excellent production that shows the swanky outdoor/indoor setting, the newspaper backdrop, clean hat displays, and of course some VIPs in attendance. Spotted were Russell Simmons, Vashtie, Stalley, and Don C himself. It’s also accompanied by a hot beat that I tried Shazamming to no avail. It must not be released but if it is, educate the uninformed!
Hometown readers, if you can pony up the cash to rock the leader in luxury sports hats, you already know where to go…
