Wayback Wednesday: The Pack “Vans”

Wayback Wednesday: The Pack “Vans”
This week, Kaboom! Magazine.com “Wayback Wednesday” takes us all the way back to the year 2006. The Pack’s hit song “Vans” was number 23 on the top 30 hip hop charts, played on 65 hip hop stations nationwide on 35 pop stations nationwide. It was also listed at No.5 on Rolling Stone’s “Best songs of 2006.” The song featured a chorus of “Got my Vans on, but they look like sneakers; (You) wearing coke whites but my Vans look cleaner.” The music video for “Vans” aired on BET, but MTV, and MTV Jams, refused to show the video because it promoted a consumer product. However, MTV aired an edited version of the video, in which the word “Vans” was censored throughout the song.
