NBA Player Iman Shumpert Remixes Drake’s “Hotline Bling”
Iman Shumpert, by all accounts, holds the title of the best rapper currently playing in the NBA, for whatever that's worth. And today he re-asserts his credentials by remixing the current No. 2 song in the country, Drake's "Hotline Bling," which you can hear below.
With lines like "I know y'all love my highlight reel/But understand the work it takes" and "I signed for 40 now I'm cool/I went and got my family straight," Shump puts his own spin on the track and does a pretty decent job, all things considered. And this is by no means his first remix of a hot song; over the past few years he's tried his hand at Rae Sremmurd's "No Type," Migos' "Versace" and Nicki Minaj's "Chi-Raq," as well as dropping a diss track aimed at Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy (predictably, Charlamagne clapped right back). Metta World Peace even told us that he once tried to get Shump signed to Interscope. How does Shumpert stack up against the best NBA rappers of all time? How does his remix compare to Erykah Badu's? So many questions.
