Hello and welcome to Ante Up, XXL’s podcast where the hip-hop and sports worlds collide. For the 20th episode of our sports podcast, XXL‘s Manny and Roger sat down with Grammy award winning rapper Lecrae.

Kicking off their conversation in this week's episode, the fellas talk about the NBA playoffs and breakdown each team chances to win their respected series. Lecrae discusses the Atlanta Hawks chances to bean LeBron James and the Cavs, Dwyane Wade resurgence and if the San Antonio Spurs can beat the Golden State Warriors in a series. Lecrae later opens up about his friendship with Steph Currry and where they first met. The guys later focus on the NFL and Lecrae discusses what advice he would give trouble quarterback Johnny Manziel and why nice guys like Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson always finish first.

Lecrae closes up the podcast with the XXL guys by reminiscing about his football days and his new book, Unashamed, which is out on stands right now.
