Remember back in the day when Run-DMC wrapped about their Adidas? Before long, anyone who wanted to be "down" was sporting a pair of them fly shoes and trying to sound cool by using words like "down" and "fly." Anyway, apparently that era is gone because a song by rap group The Pack, titled "Vans," has been shunned by MTV until the group edits their video and changes the name of their song. The network claims the video is too much like an advertisement and not enough like a video. Nevermind the fact that all videos are essentially commercials created to sell albums. It's all part of the package these days, and the only reason the likes of Britney Spears and Shakira are even on the radar. I placed the video after the jump for educational purposes. Oh yeah, and I totally used to have a pair of Vans like the skateboarder is wearing in the opening shot. Damn, I was stupid fresh.

This does not surprise me. When has rapping about what you're wearing become so wrong?

All MTV sees is $$$, notice how they blurr out every brand that you see on MTV, you dont see a nike swoosh - you see a big blurr on some n*ggas' t-shirt.. They want the companies to pay to get unblurred, thats all.. greedy mothafu*kaz, what else is new?
