    “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...

With the use of sampling, and the genre's increasingly collaborative production methods, breaking down the construction of songs can become convoluted.
