All black athletes want to be rappers, and all rappers want to be athletes.
"I swear sports and music are so synonymous/'Cause we want to be them, and they want to be us." When Drake rapped those now famous lines on "Thank Me Now," people couldn't help but think that Drizzy was right. Well, he is...for the most part. Because for every Kevin Durant or Kobe, there's a ton of athletes who can simply listen to rap and even recite the rhymes without thinking once about getting on the mic.
You'll hear LeBron rap a couple bars from "Versace" in the club or freestyle once and a while, but that doesn't mean Bron Bron is going to dedicate a large chunk of his offseason to getting in the studio to drop his first LP by fall. No matter what sport it is, once the season is done, most players would probably prefer to chill out, relax, play video games and occasionally party, before putting in the time and effort needed to record an album.
