The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

9. Craig Mack f/ The Notorious B.I.G., Busta Rhymes, Rampage, & LL Cool J, "Flava In Ya Ear (Remix)"

Lyrics: "I'm straight rap great, busting heads, straighten dreads/I'm everlasting, like the toe on Pro Keds"
Artist: Craig Mack
Track Title: "Flava In Ya Ear" (Remix)

This is one of the greatest sneaker references not because of the line itself but how crazy ironic it is. A verse earlier, Biggie literally had just killed Mack's career. So much for being everlasting. Also even though PRO-Keds aren't as popular nowadays, one can't deny its clean, aesthetic look. Mack's face looks the exact opposite.
