During his Would You Like a Tour? show in Portland, Ore., last night (Dec. 3), also where the Nike headquarters are located, Drake announced his new deal with Jordan brand.

"Today also happens to be one of the best days of my life. Growing up, I'm sure we all idolized this guy, he goes by the name of Michael Jordan. So today, I came to Portland and officially became inducted into the Team Jordan family."

Drake took to Instagram soon thereafter to share photos of two offerings from their collaboration: AIr Jordan 10s and OVO Stingray 12s.

Jordan announced the partnership early this morning on Twitter, tweeting: "He's home. Welcome the newest member of #TeamJordan: @Drake."
