Hip hop and basketball have an undeniably strong cultural connection; their influence on each other is greater than any inter-music/sport relationship, and this website's existence is a testament. Of course, when two realms are so closely linked, the inclination to cross-over seems more natural, and NBA players like to think they can rap even more than rappers like to think they can ball.

For starters, the club doesn't want to put you to sleep. And Neither does the radio. For whatever reason, songs that make you think don't seem to have wheels in 2015. But that's okay though, 'cause we got you.
A day late, but here's three tracks from last week that were lacking in views but good ish nonetheless. Trouble- Let Them Tell it I not only love this beat but the lyrics are on point. If you let them tell it...everybody's fake as fuck. True words from DTE's Trouble. Johnny Polygon- My Shit >

Originally, the center position was meant to swat shots, grab rebounds, and score with their backs to the rim.
