The Toronto Raptors will rock their City Edition jerseys when they host the Utah Jazz at Air Canada Centre on Jan. 26.  

Unsurprisingly, the threads feature multiple hometown aspects. 

Per the club, the black and gold colors on the jerseys are inspired by Drake's OVO Sound record label. The Toronto-born rapper and entertainer is often spotted in the front row of home games. 

The six points of the chevron design represent the city's six boroughs, and "North" is from the team's "We The North" mantra. 

Along with wearing these unique jerseys on Jan. 26, the Raptors will also showcase a new court design modeled after the uniforms. 

Toronto is flying high after notching a 133-99 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday:
