With Life After Death, the Notorious B.I.G. became a fixture of households all over America as the dirty double’s single laden lineup dominated MTV and BET with blockbuster Hype Williams visuals. The platinum track “Hypnotize” had everything going for it, layering ’70s sampling, ’80s homage and ’90s visuals with just enough gritty street talk to appease hardcore fans. Of all the quotable lines, “Pink Gators, my Detroit Playas” probably stands out the most for the BK MC that matched flamboyant fashion with bass backed bars so well.
Today, Detroit-rooted Burn Rubber pays homage to their hometown trendsetting and Christopher Wallace with the Burn Rubber x Reebok Classics Phase 1 “Stink Pink Gators” collabo. Set to suede, alligator embossed leather and timely 3M accents, this predominately pink pair is offset well by a white midsole and gum outer. Some strong Reebok Classics synergy with the upcoming Cam’ron collab, too.
Look for the Burn Rubber x Reebok Classics Phase 1 “Stink Pink Gators” to launch online at Burn Rubber on April 30th at 12 AM EST.
