Jay-z Birthday..best basketball lines?
Jay z and rap been connected to basketball for years. and in honor of jay's bday what are some of your favorite jay-z basketball references or any basketball references in Rap for that matter?
some of mine are : "Moan, turn those hollers to screams as we zone like a college team/Then they can hear you from Hollis Queens"
"It aint chris rock b****, Its the Roc B****, and im a franchis like a houston rocket nah i mean?"
"To guide ya'll through, show you how it's done/I'm the question and the answer like Iverson"
"From the stoop to the big dudes, stoppin' us from playin' hoops/And us gettin mad, throwin' rocks off the roof"
"See when I'm low in digits, I push blow in a blizzard/I'm a player for real, I post and pivot"
"Keep her out of nightclubs all in the mix/From hanging out with chicks who be swallowing di***/From cats who order Cris play the floor with the Knicks"
"It's not even close, just leave it alone/I'm Michael Jordan, I play for the team I own"
I Could go on ALL day but i wanna hear some of yall thoughts, Thumbs up if you a Hov fan ^^^

"Ima get bucks like Milwaukee

Dont know what the hell he's talking about though lol
Interesting point you bring up Plat. I have been wondering lately what the hell that means.
"Psycho, I'm liable to go Michael; take your pick: Jackson, Tyson, Jordan...... Game 6."

"Whatcha gonna do about it b____, I'm 500 pounds.
Look at you looking at me. You’re nothing, I'm a giant.
In my world you the white girl and I'm Kobe Bryant."
"You know where the hell you are? This is Indianapolis, Indiana.
And I’m smooth like white chocolate, Cena’s a vanilla thriller.
My F-U is automatic, like jump shots from Reggie Miller."
But you messed up one of the nicest Jay-Z lines... It's "It aint chris rock b****, Its the Roc B****, and im the franchise like a houston rocket Ya mean (like Yao Ming)?" I thought it was dope because he put both Stevie n Yao in there... Straight fire...
In the Kobe Lebron reference, I think he means when playing NBA video games, Kobe used to be the best and he would play him. But now Lebron is the best, so he is the one he plays. Then the final line is a lament that while Jeezy is famous now, someone will take his place and he will get passed over like Lebron is passing over the great Kobe. So he is asking the audience to not forget him.
At least that is what I hear.
LMAO!!!!!....I had to comment on the "Kobe, LeBron, 23, 24" reference as seeing how clueless some of ya'll are when it comes to understanding lyrics. What ya'll like 12 yrs. old? I know this is a bball site, but ain't none of ya'll know what he talking bout? Aint none of ya'll been in the streets or got ppl in the streets? ^^ this dude said when he plays videos games he used to play Kobe, but now since Bron is the best he plays wit him? The f&*#? Lol Jeezy was talkin bout coke(OBVIOUSLY, that all he talk bout)...Kobe/24 = $24,000 for a key. Bron/23(when he wore that #) = $23,000 for a key. Meaning he gettin it cheaper now lol. And Jay saying he paying dwyane wade (wears #3) means he only givin the connect $3,000 upfront for a key. Oh yeah, a key = Kilo. hahahahah kids nowadays smh....
Didn't know we had a kingpin on the site. Sorry some of us speak proper English, work 9-5's (or crappy hours like 1-9), and don't have any "people on the streets." Besides, getting it for a grand cheaper isn't going to influence your profit that much. That's about a 4% discount. Not enough to rap about.
"I Brewed her(Brewer) Boozed her(Boozer)..you would of thought the bulls was playin. I mean I aint know her but when that D.Rose she was like dang!(deng)"
Hollow Da Don!
Jeezy isn't talking about Keys of dope... What is wrong with you???
ALSO has nothing to do with Dope...
lol I swear ya'll some cornballs. ^^^^I didn't say dope(herion) I said coke you idiot! BIG difference. Key of dope = 60, 65 grand....Why am I even discussing #'s wit you's?!?!?! Its obvious you squares dont know what the hell your talkin bout. This dude said video games!?!? hahahaha And if they not talking bout drugs....what are they talkin bout SMART GUY??? Its so obvious, that sh*t aint even a deep metaphor or anything like that lol.....and to the other simp apb540, im far from a kingpin but I do know gettin it for a stack cheaper is a come up like a muhhh....considering the cut, etc....but you wouldn't know bout that. So stick to workin your little slave job like the sucker you are while discussin ball on a message board. And stop trying to decipher rap lyrics. Ok, got it brah?
Yup I'll have fun outside of jail being a slave. Calling people "brah" is lame as hell btw.
^^^Just shut up plz. You dont know nothin bout nothing. I can tell by ur avi your a square. Prolly from Iowa or some sh*t like that. And your the lame for not detectin the sarcasm in me callin you "brah". Understand now brother? lol be easy......
