The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

12. Kanye West f/ Ghostface Killah & Pusha T, "New God Flow"

Snippet:
Lyrics: "I ain't tryin' to stunt man/But the Yeezy's Jumped Over The Jumpman."
Artist: Kanye West
Track Title: "New God Flow"

The Yeezys were released on June 9th, and all the surrounding frenzy made some people forget the Jordan IV Military Blues were released the same day. There's no way Yeezy was going to let that fact slip without acknowledging it. West didn't even wait to release the song; he freestyled the verse a few weeks before "New God Flow" came out. However, December's Black and Red XIs release showed us the Jordans weren't going anywhere.
