Already known for his music and rap career, the Toronto native Drake, has been named as a part of the NBA's Toronto Raptors organization as well. The team recently announced that Drake would be the Raptor's new global ambassador. The team decided to make this move as Drake is not only a well known rapper in the U.S., but is also from the area, and, to help create more buzz around the organization, the team, and other operations with the Raptors, as the team has been noticing a decline in earnings and profits. The hope is that the young Drake, will not only help to put more fans in the seats for home games, but also to help boost sales. The hope is that he will also help rejuvenate the franchise, as it has not seen a great season for fans, in quite a few years, which has resulted in the fading fortunes the team has been experiencing in recent years.
In recent years, Jay Z purchased a stake with the Brooklyn Nets. With a net worth of around $500 million, he is well known in the rap and sports world. In comparison, Drake, , who has a net worth of about $30 million, has recently hit the music scene, and is one of the better known rap and hip hop artists of recent years. The Raptors are hoping he can do what Jay Z did, for the New Jersey Nets organization, now located in Brooklyn, and help put fans in the seats, and recreate an atmosphere where fans want to come watch the team play.
