The Toronto rappers gift Drake a diamond-studded jacket worth $747k

Drake’s net worth hiked up by more than half a million dollars on Tuesday night, when the Toronto Raptors gifted him a custom-made diamond OVO jacket. The Canadian basketball team gifted Drake the bespoke garment before the 4th Game of the NBA Finals, paying homage to their team ambassador. A ritual embraced by the team since the last four years, the jacket gifting has become an annual phenomenon.

While the jacket was sourced from a French mill by Toronto’s Garrison Bespoke, the OVO logo on it was encrusted with diamonds from the Diamond Foundry. 235 diamonds have been hand-embroidered on the one-of-a-kind sports jacket, which was gifted to Drake by the Raptors president Masai Ujiri.

“This is truly a 1 of 1 piece,” Michael Nguyen, the clothier behind the jacket said. “Both the jersey inside, which Drake himself helped design, and this very special piece of cloth. And the diamonds, of course.”

The Raptors shared the special moment via Twitter with the caption, “You don’t worry ‘bout fittin’ in when you custom made. #WeTheNorth.”

The value of the jacket can be said to be $747,000 at today’s exchange rate.
