Cleverly contorting a word to fit a rhyme that it traditionally shouldn’t is a talent of Lil Wayne that is on display right here at the beginning of his Swagger Like Us verse. It should be noted that even with the way Tunechi elongated the word adidas to fit the rhyme pattern, a more proper pronunciation was used by him in the song than most people in the world making mention of the sportswear company. Wayne was an early adopter of Jeremy Scott’s work with adidas and is still a habitual Stripes wearer.
