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.

Jay-Z Wearing Air Jordan VIII “Bugs”

May 21st, 2013 By

Jay-Z is one of the rappers out there that’s actually old enough to remember when the Air Jordan VIII “Bugs” first came around. Granted, we can’t really comment on how into sneakers he was at the time so who knows if he ever laced up an OG pair. Anyways, he got the retro, having just brought them out for a little bit of yachting in the south of France.

Jay-Z Wearing Air Jordan VI “Black/Varsity Red”

October 8th, 2012 By

If a picture was ever worth a thousand words then was it. Jay-Z, son of Marcy Projects, reigning over Brooklyn from on high as he surveys the newly christened Barclays Center in the middle of his historic run of concerts at the same venue. The Air Jordan VI’s spotted (the black/varsity red for those keeping score) serve as an extra bit of nuance, a detail that points more to his roots (who remembers the classic Jay x J’s Hawaii Sophie shot?) than his current level of luxury interest.
