Another stellar year for hip-hop. As the digital market continued to flourish, singles did accordingly. From Chicago trap to New York boom-bap to Houston trill, it’s all here.

“A rapper”. This is
the common response an NBA player gives when asked “what would you be if you
weren’t in the NBA?”, (with “actor” a close second). Many ballers have put their money where the
mic is and tried their hand at rapping, an even a few have started up their own fledgling labels. We take a look at the NBAers who have shown some promise on the mic. HNHH...
