The Best Air Max Lyrical References In Hip Hop


Gucci Mane – ‘Bricks’ – The State vs. Radric Davis {2009}

Zone-6 polar bears never see Summer,
It’s Winter all year cause the birds fly under;
95 Air Max cause I’m a dope runner,
I’m ballin’ like an athlete but got no jumper;

On the first album that Gucci Mane released under his 1017 Brick Squad imprint (under Warner Bros.), Guwop had the one of the strongest street records with ‘Bricks’. Featuring Yo Gotti & OJ The Juiceman, this music video also served as one of the first on-screen appearances of Nicki Minaj. Dom Kennedy later sampled Gucci’s Air Max line in this song for a chorus.
