“Halftime”

Producer: Large Professor
Lyric: “Back in ‘83 I was an MC sparkin’/But I was too scared to grab the mics in the parks and/Kick my little raps 'cause I thought niggas wouldn’t understand/And now in every jam I’m the fuckin’ man”
Why It’s Dope: If you ever walk or drive past the Queensbridge housing projects where Nas grew up in the summer, you’d notice the barbecues in the parks beneath the Queensboro Bridge and impromptu rap battles. Just imagine 10-year-old Nas in 1983 listening to the older kids spit rhymes and being too afraid to jump on the mic himself but harboring those hip-hop dreams. Then fast forward a decade to Nas being hailed as the best rapper to ever come out of Queens. Badass.

While the reaction to Sterling's remarks—wherein he said Johnson should be "ashamed" for having AIDS, which he does not have—was vitriolic, it's far from the first time the Los Angeles Lakers legend has been in the headlines. As one of the greatest NBA players of all time—and an ambassador for a disease, HIV, that has had the entire world on edge for decades—he's gotten name-checked in a multitude of hip-hop tracks. With that in mind, XXL has compiled 36 hip-hop songs that reference Magic Johnson. —Dan Rys
