They Say, Singers Shouldn't Act, Should Athletes Rap?
Now we have the huge corporation of Nike in association with Foot Locker working against our better judgement. In a new commercial, Nike recruited Mo Williams, Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala and Rashard Lewis, collectively known as the Hyperizers, to spit some lyrics over an old school hip-hop beat that appears to be produced by DJ Quik (who makes a cameo in the video). The video, "Don't Criticize (Hyperize)," features the ballers wearing late 80's and early 90's hip-hop garb, walking down the street with their crews, and playing basketball on outdoor courts. Sure the video is all in fun, but we don't want to give them any ideas do we? Check out the video....it's pretty dope.
