Hip-Hop artists have long placed themselves with brands to further push their trends with successful stories such as 50 Cent and Vitamin Water and Diddy and Ciroc, just to name a couple.

As a matter of fact, sneaker brands aligning themselves with hip-hop dates back as far as thirty years ago such as with Adidas and their deal with Run DMC.
