10 Hip-Hop Songs That Name-Drop Steph Curry
As the NBA Finals continue tonight with Game 3 between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers, the talk of the entire 2015 post-season has been the superb play of LeBron James and Stephen Curry.
LeBron, who is playing in his fifth consecutive NBA Finals, has had another spectacular season this year with his return to Cleveland, but it's been Steph Curry who has become the talk of the 2014-15 season. The 27-year-old out of Charlotte, North Carolina, has gained the respect of fans across the world, and most notably, the biggest rappers in hip-hop. Thanks to Drake, the Warriors' point guard was referenced on Drizzy's hit song "0-100/The Catch Up," in the verse, "I been Steph Curry with the shot/Been cookin' with the sauce, chef, curry with the pot, boy/360 with the wrist, boy." The verse quickly became one of the most-used terms to describe Curry's exceptional shooting skills and led several other rappers to get on the mic and name drop the star ball player.
