Andre Drummond showed us he had some interest in rap last summer when he hopped on the #SoGoneChallenge bandwagon. Was he any good? Well, you be the judge.

Drummond’s interest in hip-hop is in the news again because he spit a guest verse on a track for Detroit rapper Nate Nixen.

Oh man! Might we have another Damian Lillard on our hands? Is this the classic case of “NBA star wants to be a rapper” a la Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, and many others?
No, says Drummond. He was quick to let folks know he is well aware he’s not a rapper. “Don’t panic,” he told fans, emphasizing that basketball is his focus.
Just a heads up, I'm not a rapper. I just made a freestyle for fun. My focus is basketball and basketball only. So don't panic 😅😅😂— Andre Drummond (@AndreDrummond) March 10, 2017
And, naturally, Lillard got involved. A fan asked him on Twitter whether Drummond was a better rapper than him, and well…
🤔 BOY lol https://t.co/pbwJvfgOq4— Damian Lillard (@Dame_Lillard) March 11, 2017
