The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

23. The Notorious B.I.G., "Suicidal Thoughts"

Snippet:
Lyrics: "It don't make sense, goin' to heaven with the goodie-goodies/Dressed in white, I like black Tims and black hoodies"
Artist: The Notorious B.I.G.
Track Title: "Suicidal Thoughts"

The stereotypical heaven has winged angels playing harps, all dressed in white, celibate, no liquor...etc. Biggie's heaven need to have black Timbs and hoodies. Perhaps the black Frank White needs that all-terrain comfort. Timberlands would be useful if it actually does snow in heaven.
