The 50 Greatest Sneaker References in Rap History

29. Wale, "W.A.L.E.D.A.N.C.E."

Snippet:
Lyrics: "Kicks 'Made You Look' Nas/Riding in the black joint listening to Gnarls Barkley's/On DS y'all, DS flow like nothing y'all heard/Broke ass niggas all see before (CB4s)"
Artist: Wale
Track Title: W.A.L.E.D.A.N.C.E.

Wale isn't afraid to throw those sneaker references in your face. Here, he doesn't just namedrops the CB4; he informs us that they're deadstock. Pretty cool if you're a sneakerheard. Plus, listening to Gnarls Barkley while wearing Barkleys is a pretty novel idea. Freestyling over Justice's "D.A.N.C.E" was, too.
