As we have discussed before, Knicks swingman Iman Shumpert is actually a pretty damn good rapper If this latest music video is any indication, he really does take his music seriously.
The rhymes—laid over Lil Durk's "Chiraq" beat—are nothing to sneeze at, but oh man, look at this video! We've got half-naked ladies in animal masks, scary clowns, furries, and Iman Shumpert going Clockwork Orange on us. It's some kind of Yeezus-meets-Miley-meets-Lil B aesthetic, and I kind of dig it?
Yeah, it's a weird video, but if history has taught us one thing, it's that athlete rap videos (and songs) are usually astoundingly boring. At least Shumpert is expressing a bit of personality and creativity here. Keep doing you, Shump:
