In the past, Lyles has often emphasized that he is more than just an athlete; he relishes the role of being the “hype man” in the sport. He once told GQ in an interview, “It’s not just about going out and running as fast as you can; it’s about entertaining and engaging with people.” Most recently, he maintained this spirit by boldly acknowledging a renowned $60 million rapper associated with Adidas’ rival brand.

In his latest Instagram update, Noah Lyles introduced an “ask me a question” feature on his stories, engaging with his fans. Amidst responding to numerous questions in his typical Noah Lyles style, one question stood out. A fan asked the World Champion, “What’s your favorite song at the moment?” Instead of responding with words, he posted a picture of himself mid-air, exuberantly celebrating on the track at the NYC Grand Prix.

He was dressed in a blue Adidas tracksuit and gave a shout-out to the competitor brand, Nike’s $60 million rapper, Travis Scott. The accompanying track was “Travis Scott – FE!N ft. Playboi Carti.” The picture was a nostalgic throwback for many, and the song surprisingly complemented the vibe it conveyed.
