The Canadian rapper has taken a lot of flack over the years for his love of whichever team seems to be hottest at the moment, but there could be a little more going on in this instance, as Oregon has a jersey to match just about every possible outfit

Drake's protege pointed out on Twitter that the rapper was also wearing the coveted Air Jordan "Oregon" V's at the concert.
