Detroit Lions rookie Ndamukong “Badonkadonk” Suh met up with noted recording artist Jay-Z recently. “Recording artist” is my nice way of saying “guy that makes music that I don’t really like.

The No. 2 overall draft pick recently got some career and life advice from Jay-Z. Suh met the rapper and part owner of the New Jersey Nets backstage at the Palms Casino Resort in March.

“He said, ‘Stay humble, hungry. And continue to press on,’ ” Suh said. “He was very proud of the way I carried myself and so forth. Just stay who you are, stay true to what you are and what you believe in. Don’t change yourself. Don’t let the money change you.” –FreeP.

Pretty humble words for a guy hanging out in a plush Vegas hotel that goes home to Beyonce’ at night. And I’ll be fair, “Empire State of Mind” is a pretty good song, but nothing else he’s ever done really blows my skirt up. I’m more of a Skee Lo guy. Who doesn’t wish he was a little bit taller. Or a baller, for that matter?
