Putting on some Airs
King For a Day

from Talib Kweli (Ft. Norah Jones) – Soon the New Day Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He is dressing up and going out to live it up for a night, but as he says later, it’s all a masquerade. Airs refer to Air Jordan shoes, which are prized shoes by most sneaker-heads.

He’s also saying he’s putting on “heirs”, hence his reference to being King for a day.
