It's no secret that Pharoahe Monch is an absolute lyricist. He's been in the game for close to three decades now and has several hits to his name. He's not someone you want to test on the mic because if you do, there's are good chance he'll destroy you in just a few bars. While Pharoahe Monch is widely known as an O.G. in the rap game, he's also knowledgeable when it comes to kicks.

The "Bad MF" rapper recently sat down with Sneaker Watch to talk about his favorite sneakers and even shares a crazy story about how a former prison inmate reacted to his Air Jordan Is when they were on the train together in the Bronx. Pharoahe Monch says the guy was looking at his Jordan Is like there were "space shoes" and had to break down what exactly Jordans were. He says, "It took me a minute to try to comprehend being locked up that long and then coming out and seeing Jordans for the first time." Such a crazy story, right?
