When you're a part of the rare top five percent of the population, you're bound to naturally grow and develop friendships with others of the same ilk. When it comes to athletes and rappers, the sentiment has held true throughout the years as both marvel in each others talent. On the heels of Drake's most recent sports bromance with Italian striker Mario Balotelli, we decided we'd take a look back at some of the best rapper-athlete friendships and grab pics of some of their best moments. Over the years we've seen some of the game's best grow close like LeBron and Jay-Z, along with Floyd Mayweather and 50 cent, and guys on the come up like Darelle Revis and Mac Miller, and Wale and John Wall.
