Drizzy is here to make sure ya'll are looking fly while running up and down the courts: the rapper unveiled his latest NOCTA capsule, focusing on all things basketball, and the capsule looks nothing short of fire. The new drop "expands the culture of basketball for a new generation. A collection inspired by today's athletes," per the official NOCTA Instagram. So let's take a closer look at what's featured in the latest drop.

The Take Care artist launched an entirely new label with Nike, NOCTA, in 2020, and nothing was the same after that. The "nocturnal creative process" is Champagne Papi's very own partnership with the shoe label, and unlike other artists, he was given his very own line and name for the partnership. "I always felt like there was an opportunity for Nike to embrace an entertainer the same way they had athletes," Drake wrote in a comment on Nike's website. "I thought about how crazy it would have been and what it would have meant for an artist to have a flagship Nike deal." And well, here we are celebrating the latest NOCTA deal.

The Hot Step Air Terras that dropped a while ago were quick to take over the industry, as Drizzy himself was gifting the shoe to his closest friends and fellow celebs. Although there are no kicks in this collab, what did make it to the third NOCTA collection? The slogan- "Sometimes you. Sometimes me. Always us" is written across the gear, apparently as the collection's motto. The drop includes an array of colorful compression tights, UV-protection black arm sleeves, Dri-FIT headbands sporting both the Nike swoosh and the NOCTA motto, finger sleeves, fleece sweat pants, a black base layer top, and a few more dope pieces. Oh, and a black-on-black basketball in case you needed that as well. 

The cost of the collection ranges from $12 for the finger sleeve to $120 for a fleece hoodie - but hurry up because things are selling out fast. 'Til we get our hands on some NOCTA gear, excuse us while we go listen to Honestly, Nevermind on repeat.
