I… I had no idea what was going on here.
On Thursday Night’s Inside The NBA postgame show, rapper Nicki Minaj made a guest appearance. And somehow, they all ended up doing a cypher (which I didn’t even know that it meant freestyle rap battle which really shows how hip I am). Kenny Smith, Grant Hill, Shaquille O’Neal, and Ernie Johnson all did a freestyle with Nicki. It’s pretty amazing.
Watch the Inside The NBA crew drop them lyrics here:
Kenny did his thing and so did Nicki. Grant Hill had to look up lyrics (cheater) and Shaq summoned his mid-90s platinum self to do that freestyle. And Ernie dropping the mic? Classic.
They all got bars, y’all. I’ll shut up now.
