I’m beginning to think that if you are an NBA athlete, you are obligated to put out a rap single (that is usually terrible.) Or an album (which is also even more terrible.) Just ask Ron Artest. And Shaquille O’Neal. And Allen Iverson. And Tony Parker. Alright, I think you all get the picture.
Apparently Carlos Boozer’s rap song had debuted during Game 2 of the Heat-Bulls series at United Center Wednesday night. With lyrics such as “Run back down the court like you know it was Boozer!” it’s funny to think the Boozer’s normally profanity ridden acclamations were reduced to such PG lyrics. But in all fairness, I’m pretty sure we’ve all heard worse.
Here are the lyrics of Boozer’s awful verse.
Dream it, believe it, do it, let’s go
Already know I cross ‘em over, take it to the hole
Look back, thank God, look forward, trust God
That’s why when I’m in the paint you know I go hard
Might go baseline one time and abuse ya
Run back down the court like “You know it was Boozer!”
I used to be another li’l fella with some hoop dreams
Now I got the game laced up, shoestrings
The Boozer doesn’t even reflect the huge contract he received this past off-season. Maybe he should focus on his game rather than his rap career….
Oh yeah, one more thing. What’s an NBA rap song without a little “Kobe how my ass taste?”
