Lyrical Exercise: A History of Kanye & Jay-Z’s Best Jordan References

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

Did the Air Yeezys really jump over the Jumpman? The statement line from ?New God Flow? has caused conversation over both star?s signature lines, but it?s far from the first time Mr. West has referenced his Airness. While mentor Jay-Z is known for channeling MJ?s winning ways on the court and in the boardroom, Kanye often cites each Chicago star?s impact on pop culture. Pulling from both their bars, we take a look back at the best lyrical references to Michael Jordan made by big bro and the icon with Nikes on.

Written by Tee Jay Void & Ian Stonebrook

?The survey says by the street?s according/Kanye just important as Michael Jordan/Was to the NBA when he was scorin?/Ralph Lauren was borin? before I wore him?

Song: Brand New
Album: Blue Collar by Rhymefest
Year: 2006

Did Kanye do for Ralphie what Mike did for Nike? Not quite, but there?s on denying the horsepower Polo received from the College Dropout.

The power remix (#4) is NOT a MBDTF bonus track. It was a G.O.O.D. Friday track. Boom

The reason for the Yeezy 2s Being soooo hyped up is because the limited amount Nike gives to us common folk!  Honestly i think the Yeezy 2s are ugly af! An Kanyes "Brand" is sh** compared to Js
