New Sprite Cans and Bottles Feature Rap Lyrics by Nas, Drake, and Biggie
Drop beats while sipping soda with Sprite’s new line of limited-edition soda cans featuring lyrics from legendary rappers Nas, Drake, the Notorious B.I.G., and Rakim. The “Obey Your Verse” lyrical collection (a spin on Sprite’s slogan, “Obey Your Thirst”) features 16 cans with unique lyrics from the well-known MCs. The lyrics will appear on 12- and 16-ounce cans and bottles this summer.
“Sprite recognized and respected the power of hip-hop early, and it became a part of the brand's essence decades ago," said Kimberly Paige, vice president of Sprite Brands, which is part of Coca-Cola North America. "By honoring and recognizing great lyricism from some of the genre's biggest icons on our product packaging, we're demonstrating how Sprite continues to support hip-hop artists that remain true to themselves.”
Some of the featured lyrics include “Lyrically, I’m supposed to represent” from The Notorious B.I.G’s “One More Chance,” Drake’s well-known verse, “Started from the bottom,” “Living longevity to the destiny” from Nas’s “If I Ruled the World,” and “Self-esteem makes me super, superb, and supreme” from Rakim’s “Follow the Leader.”
