Sneaker Pimps Announces 2013 Miami Lineup: Rick Ross, Wale, Stalley, MMG

Buy kicks. Guzzle drank. Go hard like the motherfuckin' Bawse.

In 11 days, Sneaker Pimps will be back in the 305. So naturally, the "world's largest sneaker show," in cahoots with buy-sell-trader DunkxChange and Monster Energy Drink, has signed up our city's biggest ballin' rap gang -- Rick Ross and his Maybach Music Group -- to show out for Miami shoe heads.

According to the official hype, there's gonna be 1,500 extra-rare pairs, tons more wearable collectibles, "sneaker-inspired art," a "live slam dunk demo," and a skate sesh -- not to mention a "live performance, special appearance, and signing" with Rozay, Wale, Stalley, and the MMG fam.

Over the years, this shoe-and-swag convention has regularly recruited rap superstars for its MIA stops, from Clipse and Cool Kids to Wu Tang's Raekwon to Iggy Azalea and Ace Hood.

But it's been three whole years since Rick Ross ran this Sneaker Pimps shit, "stroll[ing] out alongside Maybach members Masspike Miles and Gunplay, plus a full entourage of hot mamas, professional shoppers, body guards, old-school brothers, and token randoms" in 2010.

Thankfully, though, the Bawse is back. And he's bringing the whole team.

As big homie once boasted: "We the Miami Heat of hip-hop." And sneakers. And stuff.

Rick Ross, Wale, Stalley, and Maybach Music Group. As part of Sneaker Pimps x DXC. Sunday, September 22. Ice Palace Studios, 1400 N. Miami Ave., Miami. The event runs from 2 to 8 p.m. and tickets cost $15 to $30 plus fees via All ages. Visit
