#MCM: Drake Is Sweater Weather Ready
“Running through the 6ix with my sweaters…”
Aubrey Graham aka. Drake aka. 6God aka. @ChampagePapi turned 29 over the weekend. If you’ve been keeping up with Drake, you know that he’s been dropping singles (not the dollar bills… well, maybe the dollar bills) lately like it’s nobody’s business. With “Hotline Bling” and “Right Hand” topping charts, and his album with Future, What A Time To Be Alive, making waves, turning 29 is just more reason for Drake to celebrate. Did we mention he currently has 12 songs on the Billboard Hot 100? Yes, 12. So it’s a no-brainer that he is this week’s Man Crush Monday.
Wherever you stand on Drake’s dance moves, it’s hard to deny the power of his “Hotline Bling” wardrobe. He might be the only rapper to look good in sweaters all the time. Seriously, all the time. He opens up the video in a $400 Acne Studios sweater, $240 Acne Studios sweat pants, and $190 Timberland boots. Who can blame him for choosing to sport a sweater in the video? It’s obviously his style comfort zone since he has been seen in sweaters on the red carpet, at sporting events, and in a number of his music videos.
Thankfully we are in full swing of sweater weather, so Drake should have nothing to worry about. He might as well add Sweater God after 6God in his long list of names.
