The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

45. Lil Wayne f/ Rick Ross, "John"

Snippet:
Lyrics: "Shoes on the coupe, bitch I got a Nike shop/Counts the profits you could bring 'em in a Nike box/Grinding in my Jordans kick 'em off they might be hot/Swish"
Artist: Rick Ross
Track Title: "John"

A true boss knows how to use things to their fullest extent-especially the Nike symbol. Rozay has every right to call those rims on his multiple whips a Nike shop; he's the one who bought them after all. Then why not use that shoe box those fresh kicks came in to store your dirty money? Talk about getting the most bang for your buck.

Here's a pretty unfortunate fact: John Lennon, who the song is actually named after, died five years before the first Air Jordans were released.
