The Best Air Max Lyrical References In Hip Hop


The Cool Kids (f. Asher Roth, King Chip, Boldy James) – Roll Call – When Fish Ride Bicycles {2011}

Started with the Guess fit, gun on my belt loop;
black-on-black Force Ones with the black Swoosh;
Closet like a box of Chex Mix Triple fat Goose,
Rocking Goretexes, Dunks, and Air Max boots;

The Cool Kids have always encorporate sneaker references into their raps and such, so it’s surprising to hear one of the song’s featured artists, Boldy James, be the one to spit Air Max lyrics. With the last verse of the song, Boldy says how his closet looks like trail mix because of all the kicks. Judging by the amount he named dropped in this single verse, I am inclided to believe him.
