Complex’s latest list takes you back to a time when things were simpler in hip hop and kicks. Their latest list takes a look at sneakers worn on old school hip hop album covers with shoes ranging from the adidas Superstar to the Nike Air Force 1. We, however, are going to take a look at the Air Jordans worn on some covers as this is a Jordan site. Air Jordans were among the most expensive sneakers on the racks in the 1980s and owning a pair was a big deal. The fact that these were a status symbol at the time made these a must have for rappers to have on their album art as it fit in well with their braggadocio lyrics. Check out the Air Jordans that made the covers of older albums after the jump and head over to Complex for the full feature.
