Drake was feeling humorous on Friday night.
While hosting the Nike Maxim Awards in Beaverton, Oregon, the rapper performed stand-up, poking fun at the brand, including how old it is.
“Nike is 50. Nike’s so old, it’s wearing New Balance!” Drake joked.
He continued: “Nike turning 50 means LeBron’s [James] going to get you to try to play for the Lakers this year. This is the year where you’re going to walk into a restaurant and see Nike having red wine with Jared Dudley and Carmelo Anthony.”
