Rappers Collaborate On Track Dedicated To Nike AF1's

A variety of Hip-Hop legends and athletes will gather in New York this weekend to celebrate the 25th year anniversary of Nike’s Air Force 1 sneaker.

Nike will host an invite-only celebration this Sunday (Dec. 10) in New York.

During the celebration, rappers Kanye West, Nas, Rakim and KRS-One will unveil and perform a new, Rick Rubin-produced original song, dedicated to the sneaker.

Rubin is well known for his wide range of hit productions, which include another sneaker anthem, Run-DMC’s 1986 smash single, “My Adidas.”

Guests expected to attend include Dave Chappelle, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Rihanna, Queen Latifah, Spike Lee, Moses Malone, Usher, Snoop Dogg, LL Cool J and others.

The Air Force 1 sneaker has become a staple of fashion in the Hip-Hop community and has been the topic of several songs, including Nelly’s No. 1 hit, “Air Force One’s.”

The sneaker was created in 1982 and has remained one of Nike’s top selling shoes for over two decades.
