At this time, I would like to quote DMX: "“Knew she was a thug/ ‘Cuz when I met her she had her scarf on/ 54-11, size 7 in girls /Baby face, would look nice/ She was 11 with curls.”" While they were big in the 80s, 90s rap lyrics gave Reebok Freestyle Hi-Tops aka 54-11’s new life. And, this pin will give her life!
