Here’s a video of Wale telling Greg Street he was supposed to give him a pair of Paris Nike Dunks (resell price $3,000 - $4,500) at V-103. It’s funny to watch them go back and forth. Not seen in the video, but the convo resulted into Street telling Wale if he can get Street’s twitter followers to 100k by Aug 25th, he will give him the Dunks at Wale’s show with J.Cole in ATL. – The Shoe Game
