The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

39. Big L, "I Don't Understand It"

Snippet:
Lyrics: "I got more soul than Nike Airs, givin MC's nightmares"
Artist: Big L
Track Title: "I Don't Understand It"

Big L probably meant the "sole" when he spit this homonym, since the emcee was known for dishing out those cold, soulless punchlines throughout his tragically shortened career. In a metaphorical sense, L has a lot of sole because he can back up/support his talk by kicking his elite rhymes. Air Max Technology-supported shit talk, if you will.
