Here’s everything you need to know.
Drake joked about New Balance at the Nike Maxim Awards
Drake has many things, however, comedy may not be his strongest.
The Boy took the stage at Nike headquarters on Thursday, September 8 as he hosted the Nike Maxim Awards. The event was held in Beaverton, Oregon.
However, the way he talked about Nike’s age wasn’t exactly funny.
Drake told the crowd, ‘Nike is 50. Nike is old and New Balance is wearing it.’
The audience on the other hand responded with groans and low responses.
However, Drake didn’t stop himself from trying to be funny.
He said, ‘I need a quick drink.’
The 35-year-old rap star added, ‘Nike turns 50 means LeBron will try to come and get you to play for the Lakers this year.’
Furthermore, he added, ‘This is the year you walk into a restaurant and you see Nike having red wine with Jared Dudley and Carmelo Anthony.’
In addition to that, Drake made some funny comments about the supply chain issue at Nike.

Drake smiled at Tyga as he spoke
Drake landed some punchlines from some famous names including Adidas and Kanye West when he spoke at the Nike Maxim Awards.
However, fans were quick to notice that she also took a swipe at Tyga during her speech.
The Canadian rapper said, ‘When you’re thinking. Adidas has Kanye, I think.’
In addition, the story succeeded in making the audience laugh at the big event.
However, Drake continued to say, ‘Nike, we have LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Giannis [Antetokounmpo], Michael Jordan. The greatest creative mind of all time, Virgil Abloh, rest in peace. We have Cristiano Ronaldo.’
He kept saying, ‘We have Serena Williams. We have Tiger [Woods]. And I’m sure Reebok has Tyga, so we’re good.’
In case you didn’t know, the One Dance producer has a longstanding beef with Tyga. It’s about interviewing the 32-year-old rapper in 2014.
The Taste singer said at the time, ‘I don’t like Drake as a person. He just lied to me.’
In addition, he added, ‘We were forced together and it felt like we were pushing relationships.’
