about

Sneakers have continued to be an obsession for me that I just can't shake. I just wanna take flight.

lyrics

I remember the first pair that I seen up close
On the foot of a local hustler who would be on post
Right by the bodega on ogontz and Chelten ave
Turned the heads of everybody who happened to walk past,
$100 bucks or more but it was worth it
Cause that kind of attention justified a purchase
As you know I was an only child
Any thing I ever wanted was copped, momma would hold me down..
But when I asked for the Jordan’s
She didn’t say she couldn’t afford them
She told me they weren’t important
Cause Dude makes a fortune
And targets minorities who
Kill each other for them
I thought that was a little bit harsh
She aint know what it was like on the yard
Getting no love for something you had no control of
Making up for that everyday as a grown up
She said it’s unimportant to front
When you get a job, buy all the Jordan’s you want…
Yup
So that’s just what I did
And now they can’t fit in my closet
but I take flight

Mom I know it just ain’t right
I wish I could just take flight
The bills past due gotta put something down on the lights
But ya boy wanna take flight
The envy and stares, the attention
That’s what I like
And that’s why I wanna take flight
40 years old and I still wanna be like Mike
I wish I could just take flight

(Tina Estes)
Sometimes I dream
That he is me
You've got to see that's how I dream to be
I dream I move, I dream I groove
Like Mike
If I could Be Like Mike

*Mike said Republicans buy sneakers too
Lebron took his fortune and built the Promise school >
When they ask who’s the GOAT it ain’t hard to tell who
But I just wish Bron made cooler shoes, dude
I read a quote that says nostalgia’s undefeated
And we must know our history or be doomed to repeat it
Believe it
I just spent 200 bucks on this
Just to be like homey you ain’t up on this
Proud hypocrite l don’t regret it…
I guess if you could help it, it probably wouldn’t be described as a fetish
The Alarms I’m setting, Saturdays at 6:59
Just to hop inside a virtual line
Pay ridiculous amounts for a simple design
Just cause they told me itd be there for a limited time
It’s in the front of my mind
Did he really say “eff them kids”
And would it change my opinion it did?
Well,
I’m afraid that it’s not that simple
My accessories grew to a global status symbols
To the point most brothers got a box of dunks
They keep on ice, haven’t even rocked em once
Slip my self esteem on one foot at time,
Just to hope a stranger gimme the nod
What a life,
Step on mine expect to get in a fight
All because ya boy wanna take flight
Let’s Take flight

Mom I know it just ain’t right
I wish I could just take flight
The bills past due gotta put something down on the lights
But ya boy wanna take flight
The envy and stares, the attention
That’s what I like
And that’s why I wanna take flight
40 years old and I still wanna be like Mike
I wish I could just take flight

(Tina Estes)
Sometimes I dream
That he is me
You've got to see that's how I dream to be
I dream I move, I dream I groove
Like Mike
If I could Be Like Mike
