After putting in 13 years of WORK and getting cut from the Carolina Panthers, WR Steve Smith should pump this song in his beats by DRE and put it on repeat before wildin’ out like Chris Brown.ross


If Phil Jackson comes back to New York, this should be the song played as he wobbles back on to the court, bad knees and bad address the Knick fans.

3, My Nigga BY Rich Homie Quan

With the NFL trying to PENALIZE players for using the N-WORD, this should be the theme song for all the players who oppose this silly rule.

4. THE DEVIL IS A LIE by Rick Ross and JAY-Z

With the ACC Tournament under way, this song should be played by all opposing teams in the ACC, who believe that they can beat the Duke Blue Devils, especially Syracuse, UNC and Virginia.

5. Nae Nae by (WHO CARES!!!)

This song is the reason why HOUSTON ROCKETS’ center DWIGHT HOWARD WILL NEVER WIN A NBA CHAMPIONSHIP!!!WHY? Because he is always dancing, grinning and coonin’.

6. Nobody by Rick Ross

With the killling of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis (R.I.P.), we all should blast this song while at the red light or at the gas station pumping gas.


Since two teams from states that legalized marijuana played in the Super Bowl, this song should have been part of the Half-time show at the Super Bowl.

10. Happy by Pharrell Williams

This is the new 2014 version of Bobby MCferrin Don’t Worry Be Happy. So, it is the perfect song for the Denver Broncos QB Payton Manning after his terrible Super Bowl performance against the Seahawks. Besides, his head is big enough to fit that big stupid hat on Pharrell’s head.
