We all know rapper Curren$y comes off the bench for the Miami Heat under the pseudonym Udonis Haslem, and that Lebron James is the Drake of the NBA. Since the dawn of time, rappers have wanted to be ball players and ball players, rappers, but here’s the Top 10 rap artists who have already (secretly) crossed-over on to the hardwood.
10. Lil B / JR Smith
When the Based God isn’t busy being Paris Hilton, Bill Clinton, Miley Cyrus and Bill Gates mixed with Obama, he’s taking fade-away buzzer-beater shots with 23 seconds left on the shot clock, as JR Smith.
9. French Montana/Joakim Noah
8. Plies/Nate Robinson
Plies has taken his shoot first mentality to the court, overcoming his height problem and becoming a repeating dunk champion. GOON!!!!
7. Stalley / James Harden
Stalley wasn’t getting the proper shine at MMG, so he took his beard to play for a different team.
6. Freddie Gibbs/Kevin Garnett
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!!
5. The Game/Kendrick Perkins
If you didn’t know, The Game is actually Kendrick Perkins and he hasn't cracked a smile since 2008.
4. Riff Raff/Delonte West
3. Wiz Khalifa/Chris Bosh
Wiz traded in his man leggings in for some basketball shorts but you can still catch him on the court doing some questionable things.
2. Gucci Mane/Artest
Gucci mane forgot to take his pills and assumed the role of Artest, where he has played defense mostly with his elbows. He recently had a change of heart and changed his name to Metta World Peace. When asked why he’d picked that name, he responded “Bitch I Might Be.”
1. Chief Keef/Derek Rose
Chief Keef finally retires his true religions to put Chicago on his back. By skipping high school english and going to the NBA he’s ready to BANG BANG on the entire league.
