The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

24. Clipse, "Grindin"

Snippet:
Lyrics: "Gucci Chuck Taylor with the dragon on the side"
Artist: Pusha T
Track Title: "Grindin"

Pusha T's job isn't to tell the listeners the downfalls of the coke; that morality stuff goes to Malice. If he's living on the edge, he's going to flaunt it because he knows very well it may all be gone in a heartbeat. He saves the grittier detail for later, and in the first verse he lets us know about he Benz, the jewels, and those Gucci Chuck Taylors. Ball 'till you fall indeed.
