Atlanta rapper Scotty, with the help of Starlito and Killa Kyleon, joins the grand tradition of rappers dedicating songs to their shoes—but rather than the standard, surface-level model of naming sizes and colorways, the song is more about what shoes can represent. Like the come-up ("Sixth grade when I couldn't afford 'em"). Or staying true to oneself ("Be yourself, that's all you'll be anyway"). Or finding one's own path ("Can't follow no footsteps"). This is not to say that you won't see some serious shoe game in the video, just don't think you can walk a mile in them.
"My Shoes" is a cut from Scotty's F.A.I.T.H. (Forever Atlanta In The Heart) tape, not to be confused with the other shoe-referencing, Atlanta-oriented acronym "F.I.L.A." (Forever I Love Atlanta), which is a Lil' Scrappy song. The tape was executive-produced by DJ Burn One and features a host of talented guest appearances (e.g. Big K.R.I.T., Trinidad James, Two-9's Curtis Williams). Watch above, and prepare to have freshness envy.
