Being a rapper has plenty of perks and for the most part that means you get the cool stuff before anyone can actually purchase the product. This happens to be the case for Houston rapper Travi$ Scoot, who recently posted on his Instagram account a pair of sneakers from the much-rumored Air Jordan “Kobe” Pack.

In the photo posted by La Flame earlier this afternoon, the Rodeo artist shows off his Air Jordan III and Air Jordan VIII Kobe iterations in a white colorway with hits of yellow band purple throughout both shoes. In his caption, the Houston rapper wrote there following: "Thanks bros @kobebryant @jumpman23 @pdxreg." While Jordan Brand has remained silent about the Kobe Jordan Retro pack, Travi$ is the second musician to receive kicks from the Kobe Jordan collection. During this year's NBA All-Star Weekend, a special pack of Kobe Bryant x Air Jordans from 1-XXX were sold on eBay for over $240,000.

While information on the release of the possible Air Jordan x Kobe Brayant Retro pack remains quiet on the Jordan side, sneakerheads can only hope the Jumpman brand releases the special Kobe commemorative pack. For now, we'll just have to wait and see which celebrity is the next to get the Kobe Retro pack. Keep it locked with XXL for any last minute updates on this much rumored Jordan collection.

Thanks bros @kobebryant @jumpman23 @pdxreg
