Required Hip-Hop For The Top 30 Players In The 2012 NBA Draft

By 06.15.12

29. TYSHAWN TAYLOR
Lupe Fiasco – “Kick Push”
Tyshawn Taylor stayed in Kansas all four years. In today’s basketball world, he’s been around the game forever. Still, Taylor is a cat that’ll compete with the best of them and won’t back down from anyone. Likewise, Lupe has been around the rap game for a cool minute now, but that doesn’t change his place as an emcee to be reckoned with. In the meantime, one can be assured Taylor will follow the path of this joint’s hook…

And so he kick, push, kick, push
Kick, push, kick, push
Coast – and away he rolled
Just a rebel to the world with no place to go
And so he kick, push, kick, push

30. ROYCE WHITE
Eminem – “Stan” (feat. Elton John)
During the Chicago draft combine, Royce White mentioned his beard was inspired by John Lennon. While Lennon is an all-time music great, there’s no way a Beatles song will make this playlist. White’s unique game and persona makes him a problem on the court, and he is a blend of old school and new school all in one. That’s why this epic Grammy performance between Eminem and Elton John is a more fitting musical rendition of him as a player.
