We Reminisce: Magic & Microwave in “13 Johnsons” NBA Rap, 1984

By 10.05.10

Like I had to remind the guys at work: Not every ’80s rapper was nice. While we’d like to believe we grew up on nothing but Eric B. & Rakim and N.W.A.-quality work, but don’t forget that wackness existed even in the Golden Age. Case in point: This clip from the NBA’s ’83-84 season recap pointing out how many guys in the League had the last name Johnson.

Who was your favorite player with the last name Johnson?
