Drake Doesn't Like the New Toronto Raptors Logo

Drake is apparently unimpressed with the new Toronto Raptors logo. The rapper, who also acts as the team’s Global Ambassador, says that he prefers the old logo that featured a dinosaur dribbling a basketball, as opposed to the new design depicting a basketball that has been shredded by a raptor claw.

"Actually this redesign was executed without me. My collaboration with [clothier] Mitchell & Ness comes out next season," wrote Drizzy on Twitter.

According to the Globe and Mail, Drake was also not happy that the team did not switch their official colors to his preferred scheme of black and gold, and instead stuck with black, white, and red.

"He wasn't overruled," a source told G&M. "Overruled isn't the right word, because it's not like he had the final say."

So far there is no word on whether or not Drake will be continuing as the team’s ambassador following this incident.
