This is just my honest opinion of the best rapping sports figures, and some of the not so good. Some players actually have pretty a decent flow, others however make me want to puke. As you know sports and hip hop go hand in hand with each other. So i wanted to make a list of who I think would make decent rappers.
Ron Artest might be controversial on the court, but he's actually a pretty decent rapper. He released a rap album called "my world" and needless to say it was actually pretty decent. He worked with rappers such as Mike Jones, Capone, and Juvenile. He doesn't have the best flow but he's alright.
He was a decent player, ok really good player, but his rap skills are above average. He's better than some players who have released rap albums. He did produce a track on Nas' "Hip hop is dead" called blunt ashes, so he can't be that bad.
Roy Jones Jr. is above average in his rapping skills. He has worked with good rap artists such as Lil Flip,Bun B, Petey Pablo, and Mike jones. His album Round One: The Album received mixed reviews.
Although he has been the subject of alot of controversy over the years A.I. gets the second spot because out of everyone on this list he seems the most comfortable on the mic, and possibly has the best flow out of everyone.
Whether you love him or hate him, he's probably been the most successful out of everyone.One of his albums was even certified platinum, so he must be pretty good, plus his rap on kobe bryant was hella funny.(Kobe tell me how my ass tastes).
Ok Lil Wayne calls himself the Kobe Bryant of rap music, which is the probably the only way they would ever be linked to rap. I mean kobe's a great player and everything but he is just really not a good rapper at all. His song with Tyra Banks called K.O.B.E. made me cringe after hearing it.
Cedric Ceballos rapping skills are worse than that "blindfolded" dunk in the dunk contest which was pretty bad.
Wow T-Hud was so bad that his rap album only sold 78 copies nationwide its first week. Ouch, even his myspace friends wouldn't buy it, I can sell more albums out of the trunk of my car. What a horrible attempt at a rap career.
Man Deion what the hell happened? You were such a great player, maybe not that great of a guy, but a great player nonetheless. I mean come on that rap career was a joke right? I'm choosing to only remember your football career, not your music career.
Ok I know Les has never released a rap album, but that being said a rap that he did in an pre-game or post game show was easliy the worst flow ever. He did on the other hand have Snoop in attendance which was cool. A rapping grandma seems cooler than les miles. He tried to be funny and wacky but he just made himself look like a jackass. That being said I hope to god he never comes out with an album.
