2 Chainz is quietly one of the best dressed artists in rap, so it was about time that he get to work on designs of his own. The Atlanta rapper teamed up with Adidas—who recently inked a deal with his friend Kanye West after Yeezus split with Nike—on a special edition of their Top Ten Hi Adidas Originals called "2 Good To Be T.R.U."
His version is a slick black-on-black color scheme with gold studded accents. Adidas' trademark stripes are rendered in snakeskin print — perhaps to match the snakeskin pants he raps about in "Feds Watching" — and there are alligator accents towards the heels. 2 Chainz loves animals.
But is the shoe a missed opportunity? If they ever collaborate again, the shoe should just be a normal Adidas but with only two stripes.
