The Game’s threat to, "kill you if you try me for my Air Max 95s" on Hate It or Love It is well-known, but known connoisseur Mighty Mi christening a reworking of Eastern Conference All Stars the Air Max 95 remix pre-dates it by a few years. Fan favorites Gucci Mane and Curren$y have name checked them too. Fabolous  proclaimed that he has a Murciélago in matching green.

Oh, and just in case you didn’t realize that Game loves them, he mentioned them again on Dead and Red Nation. Big Pun wore a pair back in the day that supported his heavy frame, as did Ghostface, Raekwon, Fredro Starr, Lil Kim in her early Junior M.A.F.I.A. days, Eminem, Heather B, and Warren G. Despite those hip-hop endorsements, the biggest influencer for the shoe in terms of sales was still probably Sporty Spice who had a whole generation hunting for bubbles.
