G.O.O.D. Music rapper Big Sean has been working with adidas since his track ‘I Do It’ was featured as part of Derrick Rose’s first adiZero Crazy Light commercial.  And though he’s collaborated on a leopard print Superstar, we can’t forget that shortly after the Three Stripes partnership was rolled out, Sean showed up in concert in NYC wearing the ‘Grape’ Air Jordan V.  It’s one of his 25 favorite kicks ever as told to Complex, a list that contained plenty of Nike and Jordan classics.  It’s a brave new world where rappers can cross boundaries athletes only venture once, maybe twice in their careers.  And that’s kind of what it’s like to be a superstar producer like the appropriately named Hit-Boy.  Add in the fact that Big Sean is opening for Kanye West and Jay-Z on their ‘Watch the Throne’ tour and Hit Boy produced its most recent hit single, and it’s not so cray that both got gifted what is rumored to be one of seven pairs ofNike LeBron 9 WTTs.  Seriously, one of seven when you’re talking about a design this hot is balling so hard, and it looks like the photos you’ll see after the jump are as close as most will ever get to them.
