If we can play devil's advocate for a moment:

Sugarhill Gang, 1979: "I said a hip, hop, the hippie the hippie to the hip hip hop."

Shabazz Palaces, 2011: "Yeah, you know I'm free, s**t, I'm free ... To make consume to catch the stuff that holds me down To capture my desires fashion out of this a crown Free to fill my smiles up with these tears that I forgot And haunt myself besides these pretty ghosts that float my heart You know I'm free."

The sublime effect of this pairing is more transcendent without context, but if you REALLY want to know where this picture came from, it was from some event sponsoring a Star Wars-themed Adidas shoe.
