On the evening of September 8th, Drake was the headlining performer at Staples Center, where a bar was serving a specialty cocktail named “Hotline Bling” after his recent hit song. Drake and Future, who is featured on the mentioned song, are currently on their joint “Summer Sixteen” Tour, and September 8th was the first local date of that tour. While performing at Staples Center, Drake had started out with his more aggressive songs, proceeding to showcase his crooning abilities later in the evening. Ultimately, Drake is quite kind at heart, evidenced when he recently gifted an Air Jordan pair to a young fan of his.
Along with the “Summer Sixteen” Tour with Future, Drake is also scheduled to make a surprise guest appearance on Kanye West’s “Saint Pablo” Tour. For someone who is a fan of Drake, sitting in the front row at any of these two concerts would definitely be quite amazing and awesome. Jackson Lane, one particular young fan of Drake, got rather lucky while he was attending the show in Houston. Drake apparently noticed the boy singing the lyrics to all of his songs. Apart from inviting his young fan to meet him backstage, Drake also gifted Jackson an autographed Air Jordan 19 pair.
The Air Jordan 19 pair that Jackson received from Drake appears to be the one from the “Countdown Package” that Jordan Brand had dropped back in 2008. Drake had worn the pair during the same show that Jackson was attending and while it may not be the same Air Jordan 19 colorway, it certainly seems to be so. Like Jackson’s autographed Air Jordan 19 iteration, the one from 2008 also had all-Black uppers with Red-colored detailing all over. The sneaker’s uppers were made up of leather with patent leather overlays. The sole of each shoe also contained a Zoom air bag throughout their entire length.
Whether or not the pair Drake gifted to Jackson was the Air Jordan 19 from 2008’s “Countdown Package” remains to be known. Nonetheless, Jordan Brand has not dropped an Air Jordan 19 in a long while and it is unlikely they will drop one any time soon.
