Streetwear, sneaker, and hip-hop culture have always been very tightly intertwined. As a result, it's no surprise that a lot of pics we get tagged in are from artists showing off their newest customs inspired by their favorite hip-hop artists and albums. Here are a few of our favorite hip-hop-inspired customs from recent weeks.

Tupac Converse

All Eyez on These! These incredible custom Converse made by @angelordart are an incredible tribute to one of the best to ever do it. Recreating these would be a huge challenge, but you can start by grabbing some Angelus black paint, flat white paint, and brown paint if you want to give it a shot.

Logic Vans

Logic's popularity has been a long time coming. These customs by sponsored artist @lucha_loafers commemorate Logic's debut album, "Under Pressure," by perfectly recreating the album's cover art. The variety of colors used in this design makes it impossible to list all of the paints used, but fire red and dark blue would be a good start.

Kids See Ghosts Continentals

Designed by sponsored artist @Dejsuscustomfootwear, these Adidas Continentals are decked out with the artwork from Kids See Ghosts - originally designed by Takashi Murakami. Angelus light blue paint, tangerine paint, and hot pink paint can get you started on a similar design.

Kanye Air Force 1s

Kanye's been on some stuff lately, but his influence is undeniable. So it's no wonder how he remains so entrenched in hip-hop and fashion culture. These Nikes pay homage to Ye's and Cudi's recent collaboration as well as the classic Kanye bear.

Legacy Jordans

Last up, sponsored artist @chadcantcolor brings us these insane customs 1s that pay homage to a few of Hip-Hops greatest. You can find portraits of Snoop, Jay, Biggie, and Pac on every side of these custom Jordans. Grab some black paint and light blue paint if you like this design as much as we do.
