Drake released a music video for his song Laugh Now Cry Later with Lil Durk that was part Nike commercial and part an opportunity to play sports with some superstars.  

The music video starts at Nike headquarters and features Drake playing a number of sports, including basketball against Kevin Durant.

As if that weren't enough, he ran football routes with Odell Beckham Jr. throwing him passes. Or, at least he did until Marshawn Lynch unleashed quite the impressive tackle, especially for a running back.

Durant had some fun with the experience:

Bleacher Report's Taylor Rooks spoke with Beckham about the video, and the Cleveland Browns wide receiver was impressed by Drake's form:

Spoke to Odell yesterday about Drake’s new video. Tells me it was a great experience that he will always remember. Said it took a few times for Drake to get the one handed catch right - but he had a really impressive fully extended form each time. 🔥 https://t.co/zQM6VOB6u9

Drake's love of sports is well-established, whether it's him yelling at opponents during Toronto Raptors games or jumping in the warm-up line for the Kentucky Wildcats. Now he can put playing basketball with Durant and football with Beckham on his sports resume.
