Lil B drops "Vans" with The Pack
Lil B was but a wee lad, 17 years old, when The Pack's 2006 song "Vans" caught the hyphy wave at its crest and took the Bay Area by storm.
The lo-fi sonic aesthetic of "Vans," the presentation of Vans kicks as a challenge to the cultural dominance of sneakers, and Lil B's simple, unadorned flow had a certain mass appeal. It was with "Vans" that he first championed himself as a man of the people. It wouldn't be long before he established himself as the leader of The Pack and then embarked on a fruitful solo career that still has several chapters yet to be written.
