Drake may have hand in Raptors redesign

When the Raptors and the city of Toronto host the 2016 All-Star Game, they should have a different look. What that look is will be determined with input from several sources.

One of those sources is from rapper Drake, who has bought some kind of interest in the team. Frankly, Drake does things and I personally have no idea what it is is or what has made him famous. Excuse my ignorance. Apparently it was enough to give him some clout in redesigning the team colors. He is the "global ambassador" of the organization.

The colors many believe will be modeled after Drake's OVO Sound record label. The Raptors are hosting a Drake Night later this year. Again, if you can inform me why Drake is famous, it would be much appreciated.

What will this new Raptors logo look like? Everyone assumes it will be gold and black like OVO Sound's logo. Who knows what the actual colors will be. The redesign is still a few years away it appears.

Nothing is set in stone now. Several designs are being considered including the possible Drake-inspired design.

First maybe I should go research who Drake is before this new logo comes out.
