We try and keep you up on what rappers and other celebs are wearing these days in terms of sneakers, but let’s keep in mind that rappers have had the trainer game on lock long before the current bubble of “sneakerhead” interest. Evidence comes here in the form of a handful of classic sneaker-featured album covers of yesteryear. Some that come to mind are Biz Markie in his Nike Air Safari, LL Cool J in some Air Jordan 1s, Three Times Dope with a mean set of Air Jordan IIIs, and the endless Run DMC x adidas moments. Click through with us for a walk down memory lane and then check out the greater group of classic rap album cover sneaker sightings on FNG and Classic Kicks.

@youngballcoach @dopeman978 Whoring is such a harsh word, but I feel you! I try to look at it like they givin young kids a start at business? A kid saving his allowance to buy some shoes he likes?, why not let him make $50 if another kid is willing to pay it? Won't no such thing as " the resell game" when I was comin up?
