Damn, I swear sports and music are so synonymous
Cause we wanna be them and they wanna be us – Drake

It’s not unusual that professional basketball players tend to venture off in other businesses and while most invest their time and money in mainly restaurants and non profit organizations, a select few have been bitten by the music industry bug. Today at HHMW, we would like to showcase a few of the NBA stars that have tried their luck at rapping. We won’t front, there’s a couple of them who’s skills translate from the hardwood to the studio, but there’s also some that should drop the mic and stick to jumpshots.
