"Lets take it back to basics
When shit gets worse we Converse
How we need a New Balance before the lines get crossed like ASICS
Just look at what we got, if we don't shoot the Reeboks" 


Song: "Back to Basics"

Album: Late Registration (Bonus Cut) 

Year: 2005 

'Ye kicks off the "Corners Part 3" verse with a play on words, name-dropping multiple sneaker brands just to let you know his art is an imitation of the sneaker life — and maybe it was a little subliminal shoutout to the Genius as well.
