Back before every rapper out there wanted to be a sneakerhead, individual MCs were associated with one particular shoe. Snoop Dogg came on the scene rocking Chucks in classic West Coast form, Ghostface Killah proclaimed the arrival of the Wally Era, and Nelly told us all about his Air Force 1s. Four Pins ran through these rappers and more, and ranked each-apparently out of the top 2,500 rapper/shoe connections. Click through to check out the illustrations and let us know in the comments who your picks are for the other 2,495.
How they going to leave run dmc off that list? Really idk who does these things but I can't believe I see ghost face on there and no run dmc. Smh
Wale and all his heat! Fuck you bitches that call him a hypebeast, y'all are just mad that your not him!
If you read the article bruh, you would've seen that these are 5 out of 2,500. I'm pretty sure Run DMC is on the list
@Lilmr81 This list had to have been created by someone post 80's. What about LL Cool J and Troops. Bet these younguns are clueless about Troops. Lol!
@AllEyezOnMe1 Believe it or not, prior to 2006, Snoop Dogg was rockin Chuck Taylors and already had 7 platinum albums. Wiz isn't the first and certainly won't be the last to wear Converse
i agree Wale was like one of the first to start rocking foams to events
@AlexGottKicks So you're a Wale fan?
@newsouth912 thanks bruh? I did read it and I'm talking about thyre top pics. I realize run is on it without a doubt but they should be above ghost period.
@boodle81 no, actually I'm not really a fan of his music. I listen to all his shit at least once but I never really caught on with his music. But his shoe game is crazyyyy
@Lilmr81 that's true but we don't know for sure if these are the top photos or if somebody at sneaker news just decided to pic these certain pics out
