EPMD on the basketball court from waaay back

Posted in Sports, Videos on July 16th, 2008 by Hyphen

Another ill throwback video from The Meaning of Dope, this one featuring Erick & Parish showing off a few of their trademarked moves on the court.  I always think it’s hilarious how so many hip-hop related people, who clearly are horrible players, think they can ball.  Sure, there are a handful of MC’s who can (or could) play (Game, Mase, Cam, Lil’ Romeo, even Will Smith was all-city apparently), but most rappers wanted to be athletes growing up.  It’s the same thing in reverse too; athletes want to be entertainers.  By no means am I a baller, but I played small college and can hold my own.  When I jokingly talk smack with artists and then get on the court only to see something like the above?  Awww man.  I just feel bad.
