Drake will be gracing the cover on the forthcoming edition of Slam Magazine, joining Toronto Raptors All-Stars Kyle Lowry and Demar Derozan.
Their photo shoot happened completely by accident, as the hip-hop and basketball publication was featuring the two Raptors players for the forthcoming NBA playoff issue. Drake, who is the Raptors Global Ambassador, was in Toronto meeting with some franchise big wigs. He went to the practice court to say hello to a few players, not knowing a photo shoot was taking place. The players invited the Drizzy in for a few pics and as they say, the rest is history.
Drake is one of several artists who are behind the scenes among NBA franchises. Jay-Z has stake in the Brooklyn Nets, Nelly is a minority owner with the Charlotte Hornets and Usher is a part-owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
