Just a friendly game of basketball

Twista - NBA Live 2004
(From NBA Live 2004 soundtrack; 2004)



You know Twista & Traxster did their thing on this one when you can damn near rap the song from front-to-back and you've choreographed your own dance routine to the beat's spasmodic riddim but you've never played NBA Live 2004 in your life and you're an English bloke who couldn't give a Roland Rat's arse about basketball.

Football, darts, snooker. That's it, lads.

Damn, you know it's a real Twista deep cut when even Tha Barber isn't up on it,

Its rly committed to the idea. P remade the kurtis blow song, ton of rap game/basketball game metaphors n one even samples a ball dribbling up n down the court https://youtu.be/54lxEvVRMBw

Went through a no limit completionist phase there n the surprises dont stop

Next level sampling

I haven't an ear for this shit or the album credits to confirm but I wonder if that just became one of klcs go to drum sounds eg 6 shot- it's ya dog. Those could just be drums though tbh

Nice, Twista and Traxster is always a good combo, love me some of that chi-rap.

Possibly relevant to you interests, a new Snow That Product song where she is living up to the song's title:
