There are sneakerheads ... and then there's rapper Jadakiss ... who tells TMZ Sports his Air Jordan collection is INSANE ... consisting of more than 2,000 SHOES!!!!!
Jadakiss was leaving a Footaction in NYC -- when he told us another shocker ... he knows other celebs with an even BIGGER Jordan collections than his!!
Of course, Jordans have become huge collectors items over the years -- with some pairs valued at more than $3,500!!!
But get this ... while Jadakiss has paid for a large chunk of his collection with his own cash, the rapper has in the past that MJ sends him boxes of shoes for free ... because he's a fan.
So, the big question ... when you own 2,000 shoes ... what does your closet look like?!!?
