Rap songs and sports go together like peanut butter and jelly, Abbott and Costello, Cowboys fans and obnoxiousness, etc.  Most of the time this connection is in the form of one-line allusions; Nelly is “just Kid-in’ like Jason” and every rapper ever is doing something in the morning “like Alonzo.” Occasionally, however, the world of sports serves as a framing device for a whole song. This isn’t a list of the best and worst sports references used in rap songs—no “a legend in two games like I’m Pee Wee Kirkland”—but rather a list of the best and worst songs ostensibly about* sports. Of course, “best” and “worst” are entirely objective and empirically testable terms, so there’s really no debating these selections.

*(You’ll find I use “about” fairly liberally. If that upsets you, well, I’m sorry a list on the Internet has ruined your day.)

    But….how could you argue the lyrical beauty that is “I had a plan, that I could change the pace / I said, Yo, Shaq! You didn’t tie your shoelace!”
