A Look Back at Some of Jay Z’s Sneaker Lyrical References

“When I come back like Jordan wearing the 4-5 it ain’t to play games with you”

Song: “Encore”
Album: The Black Album (2003)

There’s not a more well known Jay-Z line than this one when it comes to his relationship/affinity towards Air Jordans. After The Black Album’s release Hov retired at his peak (just like Jordan) but teased a return with this line. It’s extra fitting in this situation because Jordan Brand’s bringing back the Air Jordan XI Concord this weekend with ’45’ stitched on the heel tab. Expect to see this quote a ton in the next few weeks.
