Rapper Drake revealed he gave away the custom Kobe Bryant jacket that he wore during the 2016 NBA All-Star Game to Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry. 

The Grammy award winner paid homage to the Black Mamba with customized threads while sitting in the stands in Toronto.

“[Bryant] was kind enough to make me a jacket in collaboration with Jordan and OVO of course,” Drake said on Friday night’s broadcast of the Raptors against the Trail Blazers. “That was a great piece. I actually, funny enough, I gifted that jacket to Steph. Steph’s my guy. We’re family.”
