Year: 2019

Lyric: “I done put my whole arm in the rim, Vince Carter/And I know probably get a key for the quarter”

It’s been 20 years since Air Canada’s showstopping dunk contest performance and young rappers are still out here spitting about it in songs. Props to Roddy Rich, who was all of two years old when Vince made us all go home with his epic elbow-in-the-hoop jam. Seeing the artist rock the purple dino colours with pride restores my hope in the youths of today. —Alex Nino Gheciu
