Drake’s Big Pants Look Garners Confusion, Praise, and Everything in Between

Big pants. Big memes. Drake continues to make swiftly headlined moves post-Kendrick beef.

A pair of undeniably big pants, notably worn by Drake and made public alongside a characteristically cryptic IG caption, has gripped the planet like perhaps no pair of pants before it.

As you’ve likely seen on your timeline this morning, the big pants in question were seen in photos shared by Drake himself, whose accompanying remarks were swiftly linked by some fans to his and Kendrick Lamar’s historic back-and-forth

"Goats don’t worry about one trick ponies," Drake wrote.

Naturally, given the made-to-be-memed aspect of the For All the Dogs artist’s look, the reactions were equal parts plentiful and impassioned. While some were quite fond of Drake’s choice of attire, including Ice Spice, others were decidedly less so. 

At any rate, the look likely accomplished its intended purpose, in that everyone is once again talking about Drake.

Why is he dressed like Katherine Hepburn surveying her estate while on holiday in upstate New York.

Why is he dressed like a femme fatale greeting the detectives in the foyer of her oceanside manor

I got Drake jokes because he makes it easy (and I think it’s on purpose), but them pants are fire.

Like Pink/Salmon, it takes a specific type of confidence to be able to pull them off as a man.

Still ain’t the kind of guy that ties a cable knit sweater around my neck tho.

The same is true for skinny silhouettes. There is nothing wrong with a skinny silhouette if it fits your body and outfit. But the tailoring has to be on point. Yves Saint Laurent's suit on the left is crisp and clean. Craig's jacket on the right has problems. pic.twitter.com/oFi7Qw3YXT

When we last heard from Drake, he was putting a regional parody spin on Plain White T’s mid-2000s megahit "Hey There Delilah." Shortly after the remix's rollout, speculation of the AI variety was understandably high, with PWT singer and songwriter Tom Higgenson seemingly referencing such talk in the band's much-discussed reaction clip.

"That’s not Drake," Higgenson said of the confounding track. "It’s crazy that everybody thinks that it's real. It seems like it’s very obvious."

Obvious or not, the song served as Drake's latest step in the post-Kendrick beef landscape. In May, he playfully rapped over Metro Boomin's "BBL Drizzy" instrumental for Sexyy Red's In Sexyy We Trust project. That same month, he made a surprise appearance during 21 Savage’s headlining Toronto show.
