The 50 Greatest NBA References in Rap

33. Wale, "Barry Sanders"


Year: 2011
Lyric: "Interscope feeling like Charlotte when they traded Kobe, you know?/But I let it go, Rozay finna re-up/He got himself a Kobe and they stuck with Vlade Divac"

We get the drift, but there's evidence saying Interscope has more than a Vlade Divac. Are Eminem and Schoolboy Q Vlade Divacs? Plus, let's not forget the cover of the "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe" Remix, which features Kendrick Lamar as a young Kobe next to Jay Z's Michael Jordan. Maybe Wale is the rap game's Pau Gasol?
