Every now and then an athlete will feel the need to grab a microphone and rap about how much money they got, how well they play on the field, or how nice they look when they’re dunking on people’s faces. And when these athletes do feel the need to kick a rhyme or two, we as a sports loving community of fans let them know that…. it’s not a very good idea.
Now we have the huge corporation of Nike along with Foot Locker working against our efforts. In a new commercial, Nike recruited Mo Williams, Kevin Durant and Rashard Lewis, collectively known as the Hyperizers, to spit some lyrics over an old school hip-hop beat that appears to be produced by DJ Quik (who makes a cameo in the video). The video, “Don’t Criticize (Hyperize),” features the ballers wearing late 80’s and early 90’s hip-hop garb, walking down the street with their crews, and playing basketball on outdoor courts. Sure the video is all in fun, but we don’t want to give them any ideas do we? Check out the video below:
