Former Rocket Ron Artest, the current Laker who thanked his psychiatrist after the Game 7 win, is celebrating his new ring with yet another rap song.

The song has been written and sitting around for a long time, but Artest tweaked it to capitalize on the championship. He hit the studio hours after the final game.

"Moment of silence for the champions" it starts, which kind of leaves the impression the Lakers all died in the ruckus that followed their win. Or in a plane crash, who knows?

It also gracefully acknowledges that "they" call the Lakers "warriors." Video after the jump:

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
