Parisian graphic designer TYRSA reimagines a pair of Timberland boots, painting over its classic brown color with lyrics by Nas. The designer stated that he was immediately inspired by the rap artist when he began the project, as the pair of Timberlands reminded him of the videos he watched of Nas as a kid.
