The NBA’s Tony Parker Gives Up Rapping


NBA superstar, All-NBA point guard from the San Antonio Spurs will retire from hip-hop today. In 2007, Parker dropped a self-titled French rap project which boasted singles such as “Balance-tois,” “Premier Love,” and “Top of the Game.”

In a  interview with French site Tele-Loisirs, Parker confirmed that he is done with the music business stating, ”I’m retired from music.” Now he never had success in the US musically but was a hit in France, especially his single ”Balance-tois.”
