Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers started ‘4 Bar Friday’ prior to the start of the 2013-14 NBA regular season. He issued a challenge to anyone in or around the league (including fans) to showcase their rap skills in an Instagram video once a week.
LeBron James, Iman Shumpert, Paul George and a handful of others have all taken part in the fun.
You can now add Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts to the list after he dropped a line with John Ross, the assistant video coordinator of the team, during a recent hiking trip.
Rip City? More like Rap City.
I never knew Stotts could rap like that, did you? He’s no Eminem or Jay-Z, but if given more of an opportunity to showcase his ‘skillz,’ I’m sure he could light up a room and be the life of the party.
He even threw up fake gang signs (or whatever that four was supposed to represent) to close things off. I’m sure Lillard was impressed, but I doubt he wants to see anything closely resembling this come next season.
Ross was the one with the real swag. He has some potential.
That almost sounded like I have a clue what I’m talking about when it comes to rap music. I definitely don’t.
What’s the Breakfast Club? Can I join? Does it come with a complementary breakfast? That would be sweet.
What? I haven’t eaten all day. Sue me.
