The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place -- lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good -- so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Something you always wanted to ask a rapper? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Week's Rapper: Tha Centop
This Week's Prompt: Tuesday, we asked some rappers to predict which team was going to win the NBA Finals. Let's keep it sports-themed: What are your six favorite rap songs that make at least one mention of a sport in the lyrics? Got it? Great. Go.
Lloyd Banks, "Banks Victory"
"Now all the vehicles are long enough to stash the street sweeper / Cuz this shit can get uglier than a Master P sneaker"
Tha Centop: "This is hilarious to me and clever because that was around the time that rapper Master P made an NBA roster as, like, a 12th man for like a week. Creative, Banks; a low blow but creative. So that would make Master P a sports figure at the time, right?"
