Drake delivered a comedic monologue at Nike’s Maxim Awards. Surprising the guests in attendance, the Toronto rapper showed his love for the Swoosh, arriving with the logo braided into his hair as well as sporting a microLED-embedded varsity jacket.

His clever jokes ranged from taking digs at the Beaverton-based sportswear giant, and some of the sports brand’s athletes. He even cracked some jokes about Nike’s competition as heard in the Kanye/adidas clip below. One of his best lines was, “Nike is 50. Nike is so old it’s wearing New Balance.” On top of the monologue, the Oregon excursion saw some new NOCTA pieces, some friendly basketball, and a performance from Travis Scott.

Check out some of the clips below:
