The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

22. Jay Electronica, "Exhibit C"

Snippet:
Lyrics: "So now I'm back spittin that 'he could pass a polygraph'/ That Reverend Run rockin adidas out on Hollis Ave"
Artist: Jay Electronica
Track Title: "Exhibit C"

This is Jay Electronica at his most prophetic. In "Exhibit C," he's drawing from religious references, gaining knowledge from the 5 percenters, shouting out the Verizon man, and just drawing all sorts of pictures in this lyrical behemoth. But if he's going to save hip-hop, it'd make sense he'd shoutout its pioneers. Reverend Run and adidas didn't sound this epic for a while.
