”Legacy means everything to me. When I wrote these lyrics, I never imagined my fans would someday have the opportunity to enjoy a can of Sprite and experience my art in a totally different way." - Nas.
This summer, hip-hop lyrics will be plastered on SPRITE cans across the nation in the 'Obey Your Verse' lyrical collection. The culture influence is everywhere. In this series, there will be a total of 16 cans with each artist- Nas, Biggie, Rakim, and Drake- having a quote on one of their own. According to a SPRITE press release, there artists were selected based on their reputation for being true to themselves through their music and advancing the culture.

This isn't SPRITE's first time dipping their hand in Hip-Hop. Does anyone remember the commercial back in the 90s with Amil, Eve, Mia-X, Angie Martinez, and Roxanne Shante? This was my favorite one (the commercial below). I'm mad I still remember the words. lls. #FlashBackFriday
