A Brooklyn Rapper Turned The Nas Song, “Daughters,” Into A Song About His Love For “Jordans”
Do you love Air Jordans? Of course you do. I’ve met a lot of different sneakerheads over the years, and I’ve yet to meet a single one who doesn’t at the very least respect Michael Jordan enough to give him his props when it comes to his signature sneakers. At this point, there are so many of them out there that you’d be hard-pressed to not find at least one Jordan that you’re in love with. For most people, it’s the Air Jordan XI. For others, it’s the Air Jordan III. But, the simple fact is that Jordan sneakers have been around for a long time, and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
You don’t really need us to tell you that, though, do you? After all, Jordans are covered on a regular basis on sneaker blogs. They’re worn by a lot of your favorite rappers and singers. And, although MJ hasn’t played in a decade now, Nike continues to put out Jordan sneakers on a consistent basis.
They’re name-dropped in a lot of songs, too. But, one new song by Brooklyn rapper Maffew Ragazino goes above and beyond the normal call of duty to pay homage to Jordans. Ragazino took the instrumental from the Nas single, “Daughters,” and created “Jordans,” a song dedicated to all the sneakerheads out there. In the song, he breaks down why he loves Jordans, shows disdain for all of the people out there who cop Jordans simply to resell them, and explains to us just how extensive his collection of Jordans is. Other songs about “Jordans” have been recorded, but this one is easily one of the best that we’ve ever heard.
Sound interesting? Well, then press play on the track below. If you love sneakers as much as we do, this might just become your new anthem.
