"THE A5" c/o REEBOK

"

2001 was the year A.I. and Reebok released the A5 sneaker, the fifth edition to his signature sneaker line. I was sitting in the living room at my mothers house, a few miles outside of Washington, D.C., watching television. During a commercial break, the A5 promo video came on and it was A.I. and Jadakiss. At the time, Jadakiss was an up-and-coming hip-hop superstar who had the ear of the youth and represented the voice of the streets. The commercial began with Jadakiss rapping (while also looking like a hip-hop superhero) “Yo it’s the new A5’s you gotta rock ’em, they even put a zone in the league to try and stop him.” Meanwhile, A.I. was creating an insane beat with the sound of the ball bouncing and his sneakers squeaking as he did his signature crossovers.

 

I couldn’t believe what I was watching. The blending of a hip-hop music video and a traditional product that was for sale from a fortune 500 hundred company, in what you could call a unique cultural explosion. From that moment on, I knew whatever I was watching, I wanted to do that. I wanted to make products and services cool - just like A.I. and Jadakiss had done for Reebok.
