Run-DMC and Adidas. Snoop and Converse. Some bonds will never be broken, and hip hop and sneakers is one of them. On Thursday, August 27, BET Digital celebrates the enduring legacy between sneakerheads and hip hop with the first-ever How to Rock: Kicks, an all-star sneaker showcase streaming exclusively on at 7 p.m. EST.
