Pusha-T & Dame Lillard Take A Page From Allen Iverson & Jadakiss (Video)

Pusha-T & Dame Lillard Take A Page From Allen Iverson & Jadakiss (Video)

#Music Nearly 20 years ago, Allen Iverson made one of the great Rap-and-basketball spots for his shoe, The Answer. Recruiting Jadakiss, the then-Philadelphia 76er <a href="https://ift.tt/2uIRuPn" target="_blank" rel="noopener">showed off his handle while The LOX MC rapped to cameras</a> (also embedded below). It was a one-minute ad that only created more mystique to the popular Reebok shoes from the exciting, Hip-Hop-savvy NBA superstar. In 2020, Damian Lillard is just that. A more prolific rapper than Iverson, the Portland Trailblazer is also hopeful of getting a championship ring (just as A.I. was around 2001). For his Adidas-backed Dame 6 sneaker, he taps Pusha-T for another one-minute spot, with bouncing ball-inspired production (courtesy of Pharrell Williams), and hard driving-bars. Pusha Ton also appears in the video, alongside Dame D.O.L.L.A. This comes ahead of all-star weekend. <a href="https://ift.tt/2uIRuPn" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Do Remember When Allen Iverson &amp; Jadakiss Had The Answer For Bball + Hip-Hop</a> "<em>My hands can't be trusted / Cross you up, so disgusted,</em>" raps King Push. "<em>See, I got a thousand cousins / I was focused while y'all wasn't / You played the sport, I played the porch, I served it out the oven / While y'all was out there clubbin' / I ran su*cides in the dungeon.</em>" Dame adds a bridge to the bars, which make no bones about Pusha-T's past in the streets. <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/F8m1h3UK6Ts" width="730" height="411" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"><span style="display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;" data-mce-type="bookmark" class="mce_SELRES_start"></span></iframe> There's another verse afterward. In the video, Push raps at a hyper-focused Dame. "<em>This Oakland kid is a soldier / They said it's no one that's colder / They said his heart is like boulder / 'Cause he'll hit the game-winner, bye-bye, it was nice to know ya.</em>" Previously, Pusha-T has cashed in with jingles. <a href="https://ift.tt/2SDHGy4" target="_blank" rel="noopener">After a heavy hand in an ongoing McDonald's campaign, he staked a more significant claim with Arby's</a>. <a title="Permanent Link to Damian Lillard Gets Flagrant With Shaq On A Foul Diss Track" href="https://ift.tt/336MMqa" target="_blank" rel="bookmark noopener">Damian Lillard Gets Flagrant With Shaq On A Foul Diss Track</a> Notably, it was <a href="https://ift.tt/2Hqmw0Y" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Pusha-T who spilled the beans on Drake's Adidas rollout in 2018</a>. <strong>#BonusBeat:</strong> Allen Iverson and Jadakiss' ad: <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/tV032giXqzg" width="730" height="411" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"><span style="display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;" data-mce-type="bookmark" class="mce_SELRES_start"></span></iframe>
