Continuing the Chicago scene, I’m remembering the legacy of Fred Hampton here. He was making major change with the Panthers until being gunned down in the crib by the Chicago PD.
HE WAS 21.
Obviously Jordan wore 45 during the comeback year (paying homage to his older brother btw), but the return of Original J’s is literally killing us.
STOP SLEEPING OUTSIDE FOR SNEAKERS!
Do you love Sosa? If so, why?
No shots; just wondering..
Getting at two different things here. I really wanted the Emmitt Smith signature’s that Reebok just retro’d. I have them.
It’s also my responsibility to keep the legacy of Emmitt Till in your mind.
Blacks were deemed to only represent 3/5ths of a human being.

Most would pick up reference one, but not know that in the Supreme math:
Random Gladys Knight reference. I don’t even know this song like that hahaha:
My good friend Dean (referenced later in the song) had this flag up in his dorm room and it always struck me. I thoroughly enjoyed singing this little piece right here.
don’t tread on me!

In reality, this whole thing is a super-coded metaphor for Stephen Curry. He’s always been a prodigal son, but his ankles are NOTORIOUSLY WEAK!
I actually stumbled across the original lyrics and I referenced Steph by name, but he didn’t make the album lol. Much love.
