The 50 Greatest NBA References in Rap

18. Diddy f/ The Notorious B.I.G. and Busta Rhymes, "Victory"


Year: 1997
Lyric: "Real quick, real sick, raw nights, I perform like Mike/Anyone—Tyson, Jordan, Jackson, action, pack guns" (The Notorious B.I.G.)

"Victory" seems to be used commonly by all NBA arenas in late game situations as music to hype the crowd up. It's the perfect climactic beat with some dramatic bars from B.I.G. and Puff Daddy, and a very loud and rambunctious Busta Rhymes on the chorus. B.I.G. performing like MJ is definitely not a stretch.
