What do the words “Kentucky Blue” mean to you? Well, if you’re a college basketball fan, then the University of Kentucky might come to mind. If you’re a Drake fan, then it’s more likely excitement over the crisp, new kicks he rocked while taking in NBA All-Star Weekend in his native Toronto.
Drizzy unveiled a super clean pair of “Kentucky Blue” OVO x Air Jordan 8 Retros on Instagram over the weekend, giving fans a peek at perhaps what’s to come in his successful partnership with the Jordan brand. He also sported them courtside at the All-Star Saturday Night event.

The "Hotline Bling" rapper, who is a well-known fanatic for the Wildcats, is paying some sweet homage to his favorite college basketball team here by using the school’s classic colors of royal blue and white.
Unfortunately, for now, at least, these kicks appear to be one of a kind. But we're certainly curious to see if he blesses us with a mass release just in time for March Madness.
