Joe Budden, "Black Cloud"
Lyric: "Motivation the game was supplying me/it's no longer providing me/Jayson Williams, something killed whatever was driving me"
You knew an NBA rap references list wouldn't be complete without Joe Budden. On this track he makes a reference former NBA player Jayson Williams murdering his driver. David Stern might not like the negativity, but he has to love the wordplay.
