What is your favorite lyric involving an NBA player?
People are runningout of ideas, so I ponied up to make one that will surely be even worse than almost any other out there! What is your favorite song (most likely hip-hop) lyric involving a basketball player, preferably an NBA basketball player. I love Biggies flow in "Gimme the Loot" ("I'm slammin [email protected] like Shaquille...", but the lyric isn't overly clever, though he kills the track), but my all-time favorite is Nas in It Ain't Hard To Tell. "I kick the skill like Shaquille hold the pill, vocabulary spills I'm ill..." is a classic including the Diesels name, but there are many other non-Shaq basketball lyrics (Jay-Z has a few too many about Michael Jordan). Anyone else have a favorite? (By the way, even if you are not a hip-hop fan, "It Ain't Hard To Tell" is a track to look up, Nas kills it, but Large Professor used a Michael Jackson voice sample and beat sample from Human Nature. It is one of my favorite Michael tracks, love hearing it now more than ever).
The ones you mentioned are rather lame...
Read up on Joe Buddens he has some for days...
"We can get paper longer than Pippen's arms" -Jay Z
Lil Wayne has a whole freestyle about Kobe. And Joe Budden does have lots of basketball refrences.
Higher than the satellite, crawlin' like a baby
Maneuverin' thru the traffic like I'm Tracy McGrady
one of my all time favorite players got some love by Jay-Z "Handle the rock like Van Exel"
Have you listened to those songs I mentioned? Please do.
Knicksboy has mine, that is such a sick line.
