8 Killer Plays From the Hip-Hop Playbook – If Rap Was a Sport…

Play: Jailbreak Option
Formation: Spread Offense
Goal: Give your quarterback the option to run or pass for the score.

Designed for a duel threat quarterback (versatile rapper) who can run (rampant on tracks) or pass (off to one of his worthy cohorts) the Jailbreak option puts pressure on the defense to bring down the running QB or stop the pass to an open receiver. In YM’s familiar four wide receiver set (Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, Gudda Gudda) the defense has to pick its poison. With Wayne’s current situation, we think he’ll probably elect to run out of this one.

Here’s what the play looks like on tape:

Play: TE Attack
Formation: Gun Tight End Spread
Goal: Get the ball to the tight end.

A favorite of the Dallas Cowboys, this play is designed to get the ball to the tight end, in this case Nicki is obviously the best Young Money player suited for that position. With the quarterback in the shotgun, he has the option to hand off to his running back, pass to one of his three wide receivers, or hit the tight end going up the middle on a skinny post. It’s a good option to help tight ends pad their RAC (run after the catch) yards—and Nicki has a nice rack, too. The play has worked so well for the Lone Star State heavyweights; can’t see why it won’t be productive for rap’s supreme five star chick.
