Jay-Z Poses as Andy Warhol in Air Jordan 12 “Taxi”

January 22nd, 2014 By

“I’m the new Jean-Michel, surrounded by Warhol, my whole team ball.” 

People familiar with Jay-Z as a rapper know his current affinity for dropping art references (the man has a Picasso painting in his bathroom, mind you). And while his need to collect paintings might seem a little aristocratic to the hip-hop landscape, it’s always cool to see Hov push the boundaries of content within his lyrics and style outside of his songs. Jay-Z recently posed for a photo at the Andy Warhol museum mimicking the famous pop-artist while wearing a pair of the Air Jordan 12 “Taxi”. Hit the click to get a full view of Jay’s shoe selection while taking in some works of art and let us know what you think of his choice of footwear in the comments.

January 16th, 2014 By

It’s safe to say that as the NCAA season progresses, inter-conference battles bring out the best in both competition and on-court sneaker selections.
