Rappers have been known to have as much love for their sneakers as they do for their music, and eventually as the rappers status grows within the entertainment world footwear brands partner up with the hip-hop artist of the moment to release a limited one-of-one sneaker or in some cases a signature line of sneakers. To the date, the most successful hip-hop artist with a signature sneaker line has been Kanye West. His Air Yeezy silhouette with Nike became widely acclaimed by sneakerheads and non-sneaker collectors, but after a fallout with the Swoosh Ye decided to take his Yeezy sneaker over to Nike's biggest competitor, adidas, who not only adds Ye to their roster of artists with sneakers, but also counts with the likes of Big Sean and Pharrell Williams. As more images of Kanye's upcoming adidas Yeezi silhouette start popping up on the web, and rappers like Tyga and Birdman get ready to release a new line of shoes, we take a look back at some of the most successful signature line of sneakers by a hip-hop artist.
