The Best Air Max Lyrical References In Hip Hop


Wale – ‘Let’s Ride’ – 100 Miles and Running {2007}

…my genre is certain it’s hip-hop,
not pop;
Been waiting for the real, real long like skirts at a sock-hop,
I like ___  in Air Maxes without socks;

Always known to be a real sneaker culture guy, it is only right to have Wale make an appearance on this list. He released his third mixtape, 100 Miles and Running, on his mySpace page in July of 2007; one month after signing a production deal with Mark Ronson’s label Allido Records. Shoutout Fatima from MyBestBox for the assist on this one.
