Fat Joe recently hooked up former president Bill Clinton with a pair of kicks. Not just any kicks: I’m talking about the “Blackout” Terror Squad x Nike Air Force 1s.
According to reports, Joe Crack blessed the former prez at a recent Clinton Foundation event. During the event, Joe rolled up on Clinton and handed him the kicks, all while saying, “[Bill Clinton] is an honorary member of the [Terror] Squad.”
The hook up can be viewed in a recent post on Fat Joe’s official IG account. In the post, Clinton can be seen accepting the kicks in shock. “These are cool,” Clinton said while holding the sneaks in amazement.
The kicks reportedly hit the shelves at major Nike stores on September 16 — and resellers have been making a killing on the merchandise ever since. According to a Hiphopdx post, savvy resellers are flipping the Terror Squad inspired Air Force 1s for $200 a pop.
This ain’t the first time Joe Crack and the sneaker business made headlines. Back in August, Joe told Rap Radar that his beef with Hov and Fiddy costed him a sneaker deal worth millions. As the story goes, Reebok was gonna hook up Fat Joe with a lucrative deal…until they figured out the “Lean Back” rapper was feuding with Jay-Z and 50 Cent.
Thankfully, those beefs took place in the early 2000’s, and have since been squashed. Hov has been rocking with Fat Joe as recently as 2016, when the “God Did” billionaire hopped on an “All The Way Up” remix. And Joe and Fiddy squashed their beef back in 2012 after the untimely death of legendary Hip Hop exec, Chris Lighty.
