Top 10 Rappers Making Waves In Sneaker Culture

9. J.Cole

30-yr-old rapper J.Cole is considered as one of the new elite rappers in the Hip-Hop game. He’s originally from North Carolina and he’s currently signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation management agency. If there is anyone out there doubting that J.Cole is a giant in the music industry, try this on for size: earlier this month, he brought his Dreamville tour to NYC with guest stars Big Sean and YG, and he completely sold out Madison Square Garden!

He also recently released a pair of very cool hiking boots with the Swiss luxury brand Bally. J.Cole always does his own thing —while other rappers are putting out sneakers, he decides to release his own high-quality, leather boots.
