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.
