The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

10. Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh, "La-Di-Da-Di"

Snippet:
Lyrics: "Threw on the Bally shoes and the fly green socks"
Artist: Slick Rick
Track Title: "La-Di-Da-Di"

You have to be a stickler for detail if you're going to be the greatest storyteller in rap history. Anybody could throw on a pair of Ballys, but the freshest of the fresh has to have the socks to stand out. It's the perfect way to round of an appearance that includes an eyepatch, Oil of Olay, and gold teeth. Don't forget that Kangol, either.

Plus, Slick Rick actually knows how to rock a pair of Ballys if you couldn't tell by the album cover.
