The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

38. Jay-Z f/ Mya, "Best Of Me (Remix)"

Lyrics: "Carolina blue kicks hottest nigga on the block"
Artist: Jay-Z
Track Title: "Best of Me"

Mya finds herself in quite the predicament. She'd like to stay with the man, but she knows she probably shouldn't because he's a player. His swagger, stacks of cash, and bedroom finesse prowess ("And you look like the I like It rough type," Jay-Z says) makes her decision ever harder. Also, there's those ever fresh Carolina Blue Nikes. We never learn whether or not Mya actually stays by the end of the song, but she probably did. Can't say no to those kicks.
