Is Drake Teaming Up With BlackBerry?

By  | 

Remember when Drake did that HOT 97 “freestyle” where he read straight off of his BlackBerry back in 2009? Well, it looks as if it eventually paid off because according to reports, the Toronto native is in talks with BlackBerry to endorse their upcoming Blackberry Classic phone.

Tech Crunch reports that the smartphone is set to be available in November and that Drake has contributed his thoughts on the phone’s design and is in full support of its QWERTY keyboard.

“Our source adds that Drake’s promotion will include the claim that he was involved in the design process of the new smartphone, which again isn’t as far-fetched as you might think – the rapper has apparently resisted the urge to upgrade to BB10 because no device that runs that OS has a physical trackpad, which is among his favorite features of the 9900.”
