Biggie and Heavy D help us kick off the new NBA season (of 1992)
Basketball is my favorite sport, and Biggie and Heavy D are pound for pound for pound two of my favorite rappers of all time. I’m not going to wax poetic about the connections between Hip-Hop and Basketball because a lot of people way cooler/more qualified than me have already done that, but the start of the NBA season this week HAS had me bumping this old school jam on repeat and I wanted to share it with y’all since it’s a pretty deep cut. Listen to Biggie run through every prominent NBA player (at the time) like a basketball version of his song “Dreams” while Heavy D peppers in his own flavor for a seriously heavy hitting duet. Enjoy.
