A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
THE SPIN CYCLE pt.3
NORTH CAROLINA (BASN)-Every great player needs a song to define him. And every great team needs a theme song to rally behind. With that said, in the moment of victory and in the agony of defeat, music should always be playing in the background. Therefore, we, at blackathlete.com, created a new segment called the spin cycle, which attempts to provide a soundtrack to the games we love.
1.B****, Don’t Kill My Vibe KENDRICK LAMAR
This was Tyrann Mathieu or The Honey Badger’s favorite song until he got selected by The Arizona Cardinals’ and agreed to have periodic drug test throughout his career..
2. I Need Love by LL COOL J
When West Virginia’s Geno Smith was sitting in the green room during the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, and the cameras zoomed in for a close-up of his dejected face, they should have started playing LL COOL J’s I NEED Love, which starts off with the famous line, “When I am alone in the room, Sometimes, I start at the wall, And in the back of my mind, my conscious calls…..
3. Show Out by Juicy J/featuring Young JeezyT
This should be the official theme song for flamboyant fighter Floyd Mayweather, who is known to carry at least $250,000 to the strip club just to throw it in the air.
4. KISSES DOWN LOW by Kelly Rowland
I may offend someone with this…But, since the Washington Wizards Jason Collins announced that he is gay, there maybe a lot of kisses down low, especially in the paint during the game. I am just saying….
5. RIP Young Jeezy featuring 2 Chainz
We all can see Texas A&M’s QB, Heisman Trophy winner, Johnny “Football” Manizel, who is known for his partying, bouncing to this song in the midnight hour at some club.
6. I HIT IT FIRST by Ray.J
This is simply disrespectful. But, this song could be for rapper Kayne West. Or, maybe Brooklyn Nets Kris Humphries. Or, maybe Miami Dolphins Reggie Bush…Who knows?
7. How many Drinks? Miguel featuring Kendrick Lamar
Legendary play-by-play sports announcer Al Michaels, who has worked for “Monday Night Football” for 20 years before moving over to “Sunday Night Football, must have been playing this song when he went through a DUI checkpoint in Santa Monica and was arrested for suspicion of DUI …
8. When I Was Your Man? BRUNO MARS
Ex-NFL wide receiver Chad “OchoCinco” probably wishes he had never met reality diva Evelyn Lozada. And, unfortunately, finds himself humming this tone in the shower now.
9. Love Connection by Raheem Devaughn
With Bobcats owner Michael Jordan spending $10 million on his wedding to former model Yvette Prieto, he must have made a serious love connection. Maybe, now, he can get the Charlotte Bobcats to win a few more games.
10. We Still in This B****B.O.B f/T.I
The New York Knicks haven’t won a playoff series in 13 years. Now, with the series at 3 games to 2 against the Boston Celtics, Knick fans are starting to worry. But, “They still in this B****”
NOTE: The dude behind the two-turntables is Eric Graham.
