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.

    First off: This isn’t a diss to the writer by any stretch

    The premise behind this article is interesting

    The layout was prepared flawlessly

    But the final product is trite and stale. If anyone would have wrote this, I would say the same thing. There was no way anyone could have made this a interesting product passed the idea stage.

    It just comes off so damn corny.

    I apologize if I offended the writer because I’m not. It’s well written. I just think this was an idea better left on the cutting room.

    This looks like the premise for a conversation that woulda had to involve Madden, music, and weed.
