The latest episode of Complex’s hit series Sneaker Shopping features a rising star in rap music, YBN Cordae. The young rapper joined host Joe La Puma at Flight Club Los Angeles to chop it up and cop some new sneakers.
Cordae discussed his love for the Air Jordan 1, liking the quality on older Air Jordan retros compared to the more recent ones, the DMV’s obsession with Foamposites and New Balances, and how reselling his sneaker collection helped him buy equipment for his first music studio.
“I found myself with a collection of shoes, and I started falling in love with rap and music. So, I just sold all my shoes and bought studio equipment,” he said. “These shoes changed my life in a certain way because where else would that money have come from for me to get a studio? It’s mad dope.”
