The Johnny Manziel-Drake bromance continues apace. "Draft day, Johnny Manziel / Five years later, how am I the man still?" begins Drizzy's newest song, giving rarely seen prominence to the athlete-shout-out portion of a rap song (poor Andrew Wiggins gets second billing). » 4/02/14 11:58am 4/02/14 11:58am

Wale Made A Song For RGIII

When we last checked in with D.C. rapper Wale, he was beefing with Toronto Raptors play-by-play man Matt Devlin, and we were laughing at the silliness of the beef.

Any rap song about Seattle, or so I'm told, has to include shoutouts to all the great Emerald City sports stars, and Riff Raff provides all of them: Ken Griffey Sr. and Jr., Shawn Kemp, Gary Payton, and Brian Bosworth, with a Craig Sager reference thrown in because why not? Alas, Steve Largent, Edgar Martinez, and… » 10/03/12 1:55pm 10/03/12 1:55pm

Chan Ho Park Is Bad At Rapping, Good At Poking Himself In The Eye

Hey, have you been wondering what Chan Ho Park is up to these days? Me neither! But that matters little to Chan Ho Park, who is currently back in his home country of South Korea, pitching for the Hanwha Eagles, and living the life of a fucking boss.
