DJ A-Trak aka KanYe’s DJ is releasing a Nike assisted album titled: A-Trak -Running Man: Nike+ Original Run.

Lupe was scheduled to appear on the album but due to clearance problems didn’t make it. HOWEVER, up & come-ah Kid Cudi replaced him on the track. The track in question is “Me & My Sneakers” and the Lupe laced version is below:

A-Trak’s statement about Running Man:
“I don’t really run. Yet when Nike asked me to do this track I was smitten. There was a musical challenge there, and I got excited. I’ve been producing mostly uptempo electro tracks as of late, but my background is hip-hop and I think you can hear it in my choice of sounds. I wanted this record to showcase my current style, but I also didn’t want to stray away from hip-hop completely. That’s why you find guest rap verses in the mix, plenty of chopped & screwed vocals, and a hefty dose of drums breaks that are surely more block party than Ibiza.”
