The former NBA All-Star known to many as simply Stevie Franchise used to be one of the most entertaining players in professional basketball. Whether he was soaring in the Dunk Contest or refusing to play for your favorite team, Mr. Francis always had something up his sleeve. Occasionally, that was even a crack pipe. Now, three years since being waved from his final contract with the League, the former co-Rookie Of The Year has returned, but this time, with a music video.
Yes, “Finer Things” is our first taste of Steve Francis the rapper. Once you get past the fact he completely jocked Rozay’s label name, you’ll see the visual is pretty much exactly what you’d expect from a former NBA superstar who had it all and is now in the middle of a mid-life crisis. Private jets. Gaudy jewelry. A cute female with spreading cleavage like Christina Aguilera. Actually, for someone who’s seemingly been on a down slide, he looks to be doing pretty well for himself.
The song, however, seems to have tendinitis.
