RBK, the company formerly known as Reebok, has teamed up with mixtape DJ Mick Boogie for a series of mixtapes called the RBK Artist Spotlight. A few artists you may have heard of will be lending some bars to these mixtapes; Jay-Z, Lupe Fiasco, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, and Pharrell. Lupe will be on deck first to promote his sneaker The OG.
I'm very excited to be a part of this project. Mixtapes are one of the greatest promotional tools in the urban marketplace, and I appreciate RBK for recognizing contributions that the mixtape has made to the urban culture and choosing me for this project. RBK already has some of the best shoes... and I look forward to working with them to create some of the best mixtapes, Mick Boogie said in a statement.
