Way back in the Illmatic era Nas famously described himself as a “Nike head” (no chains here, sorry Feds), but since then it looks like he’s let his taste diversify at least a little bit. While running around doing promo from his forthcoming full length Life is Good Nasir put himself in a Detroit state of mind with his sneaker selection, rocking the ‘White Collar’ version from this year’s Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580 pack. Click through to see Esco rocking these collabos and let us know if you’ve got either pair from Burn Rubber and New Balance’s latest team up in your collection. Photos: Upscale Hype
Lol@ Matt.. " nas says shit no one understands like jay z does" thank you nas for not saying 'rack city rack rack city'...nas is a legend...that's it that's all... Peace
The Blue Collars were 10x better, but these are still really really nice. Both of them get plenty of time in my rotation.
U ain't a real sneaker head unless u have a couple pair of NewBs in da closet. Best MC alive... and I do mean MC, theirs a difference
Respect to the best rapper ever for wearing something other than nikes or jordans. Seems to be all celebrities are wearing now a days
best rapper alive? LOL yeah right , that was a funny joke. Nas has a few good songs, 1 classic album, other than that he sucks and just says a buncha dumb ish that nobody understands like jay z said but people just think cuz its some over your head "what the F are u talking about ish" that hes "nice" ... F outta here ... F you NiMe and F nas too lol ... oh yeah and this shoe SUCKS
...NAS flow is TIMELESS,VOCAB is IMMACULATE, and HOV got ETHERED. One of the GREATEST LYRICIST EVER.
You must be young dude i dnt understand why u need to be saying F u to anyone at all do u know how stupid u sound??? Everyone has their opinion as to who the best rapper alive and ill say Nas is def a classic rapper who has a great rep and u shouldnt be talking like that to anyone and if u knew anything about sneakers u wouldnt be talking smack about NB because new balance has been around for a long time a much longer time than Nike that is for sure.....old school cats knw about the NBs not little kids and thats not to say ur a lil kid or not i personally dnt care i just dnt like how u came disrespecting like ur some bigshot!!!.....in other words these Burn Rubber MT580s may not be as crazy popular as last years collabo but still pretty decent and NBs rock!
