Becoming a successful rapper in an area full of those aspiring to do the same things comes with certain obligations; like putting your associates on in some type fashion. That was clearly the case with Nas when it came to releasing the aptly-titled ‘Queensbridge The Album’. It isn’t until the third (and not final) verse on the cross-over hit where Bravehearts-member Jungle (who is also Nas’ blood brother) describes the type of girl he commonly deals with as the type to wear form-fitting jeans and classic Air Max sneakers.

Since I couldn’t get a picture of Jungle wearing Air Maxes, check him out back in ’93 in the ‘Carmine’ Air Jordan VI (6) with his brother posted up by the buildings.
