Takkies

When I was 8 I tried my first pair of Jordans on
Asked my mom can we buy this
She said sorry son I just can't afford
So I, hustled the money cause I really wanted to own it
Boys in the hood they saw me with it so they broke in my house and they stole it
It's all for the takkies
The takkies
It's all for the takkies
The takkies
Don't make them unhappy when they ask for it just give them the takkies

Me and my daddy, back in time day we were slatting our takkies
I got seperate pairs cause my parents werent married
It wasn't the best but it wasn't too shabby
I swear being stylish just runs in my family
My mother had Nikies and Fila for fashion
Shout out to Paddy he pulled out Huaraches
So Camo his brother brought it from Miami
Sometimes that fly shit will get you in trouble
Becareful because gangsters will take your shoes from you
When capetown they love wearing takkies with bubbles, Nike duckboots when they step in a puddle
We hustle for rare airs, we don't see many
Bobblies and Pipens, Grippies and Penny's, call it the Kanyets some takkies are legend
I pulled out a Polo 2007, remember lecros kept all the pairs in the box
A few got lost, you better watch out cause they watch if you floss
If you don't co-op then your body's probably gonna get tossed at the crossed roads
Merchants importing the barcodes, transporting importing the cargo
I'm hunting for kicks where you can't go
You waiting I already got those
The block is a shop and it can't close
Nice clothes like in came from an art show
My outfit is Pablo Picasso I have an impeccable dress code
But don't let it go to your kop, local is lekker my flavours 2 bop
The green and the gold like I played for the Boks
I pulled out the stok Kamikaze reeboks
But

When I was 8 I tried my first pair of Jordans on

When I 12 I got my first pair of cortez, thought that I was the only one till the whole neighbourhood bought theirs
At 18 a pair of shoes I like, and they say they ain't got my size
Clean them shits with a toothbrush and they stole the laces off the washing line
Live in the hood with low finances, all that matters is the clothing matches
Ouens rob you its like target practice, bitch get out those new airmaxs
Sorry homie, that was your loss and you thought it was calm but you thought wrong
Cause they all armed for those all stars and they'll where your shit when they walk past
That's the hood life
It may look nice
But the ouens is G's like Suge Knight
British Nikes, I saw those and nigga Bekka had bordeaux
He got dreadlocks, no cornrows
We on the bullshit like the torros
Nikey tracksuit that's sports clothes
And I saw the foams but never bought those
And years later I got one from Zaid, at the Capetown edition of the sneaker exchange
I see the other rappers have been peeping the game
Oh shit, I see you high priesting again
You was sneaker heads, so is it life or death, when they point a gun at you for your Jordan bredths
And a gangster will probably cut off cut off your legs for a of Vince Carter's, that's white and red (white and red)

The broke in my house and they stole my nike shocks
Popo didn't do shit, why you think I don't like cops
I saw that boy with my kicks on, and we nuckled up just like Mike box
Tyson shit, he got knocked, like it was yesterday, I ain't forgot (when)

When I was 8 I tried my first pair of Jordans on

It's all for the takkies

The takkies
