Inside The Nike World Headquarters Where Drake & Lil Durk Shot "Laugh Now Cry Laughter"

This past week, Drake released the title of his upcoming album, Certified Lover Boy. This is the Canadian artist's first project release since his May 1st release of his unexpected mixtape, Dark Lane Demo Tapes. "Laugh Now Cry Laughter" is a collaboration with Chicago artist, Lil Durk. For the song's video, Drake and Durk took a trip to Beaverton, Oregon where Nike's World Headquarters is located. The HQ of one of the world's largest brands is 286 acres wide and is home to more than 70 buildings catering to the athletic lifestyle of the company.

In the video, there were several cameos, most of them being Nike athletes such as Kevin Durant, Odell Beckham Jr, Marshawn Lynch, and internet comedian, Druski2Funny.

We decided to break down the specific areas in which the two artists linked up and shot their scenes.
