The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

16. Kanye West, "Everything I Am"

Snippet:
Lyrics: "Ok, fair enough/The streets is flarin' up/Cause they want gun talk or I don't wear enough/Baggy clothes, Reeboks or Adidas /Can I add that he do spazz out at his shows."
Artist: Kanye West
Track Title: "Everything I Am"

The line doesn't necessairy discount Reeboks or adidas like a few others on this list, it does drive home a point. Yeezy never followed trends; he's a trendsetter, which is a trait that has allowed him to be such a mainstay in pop culture for the past decade. He's not opposed to wearing adidas, either.
