The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

18. Compton's Most Wanted, "I Gots ta Get Over"

Lyrics: "Freeze as they cock the gats is what they yelling/Can't let them catch up because they'll ruin/So I hops the fence in my fucking Patrick Ewings"
Artist: MC Eiht
Track Title: "I Gots ta Get Over"

The narrator actually gets caught by the end of the verse. If he's convicted with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, he could be sent to prison for up to 5 years. Assuming this story takes place in 1992, which is when the song came out, the narrator will be released a year after Ewing Athletics gets shut down. Those same kicks he got caught in will be pretty played out by then.
