Featuring Rakim, Kanye West and KRS One and created for Nike for the 25th anniversary of Air Force One’s (2007), this feels like NYC hip hop, circa 1988.

In keeping with our “samplin’ sport” series, the remix features a sample from the original Kung Fu Master, Carl Douglass himself, “Dance The Kung Fu”.
