Before taking the stage for his highly anticipated Saturday Night Live performances tonight, Jay-Z has been hitting the streets of his beloved New York City in the "Rocafella" Nike Air Force 1 Low.

Recently making headlines as part of Dame Dash's collection auction, the low-top was created in 2004. at the tail end of the label's collective run atop of the charts. Rumors of a 2017 retro have been circulating, with November's ComplexCon possibly being an exclusive landing spot. Nothing has been confirmed, but Jigga going public with what appears to be a super fresh pair will certainly fan the flames.

SNL, with Jay performing and Ryan Gosling hosting, airs tonight at 11:29 p.m. EST on NBC.
