Rapper T.I. joined Complex's hit series Sneaker Shopping with host Joe La Puma at Stadium Goods in New York for the most recent episode.
The Atlanta rapper browsed the shelves while explaining why the Nike Air Max 95 silhouette is the official sneaker of the trap. T.I., who just dropped his tenth studio album Dime Trap, also discussed sharing poker strategies with Michael Jordan and donating sneakers for hurricane relief.
T.I. also detailed how he did his part in giving back to those thousands affected by the damage of Hurricane Harvey. The rapper donated a pair of Balenciaga Speed Trainers which he wore while recording his part on "Ye vs. The People." The auction, hosted by StockX, helped raise $85,000.
"Those had the highest notoriety to garner the highest bid to benefit the cause that had been set forth," T.I. said. "It was an important moment for hip-hop. I wanted to contribute something significant," he added.
