[Starting 5: With the annual NCAA March Madness tournament in full swing, SOHH asks your favorite hip-hop artists to name their rap-based starting five team line-ups. Today, Wu-Tang Clan’s Cappadonna brings out his God Squad.]
Point Guard: Jay-Z
I’m going to say Jay-Z is the leader of the team. He’s gonna be the foundation of the sh*t. He’s already showed and proved he can exceed the expectations of hip-hop. He even rapped with Big L. They were freestyling going back to back. He’s been down with the younger boys since back then.
Shooting Guard: Nas
New York is the foundation of hip-hop, regardless. When it comes down to features these days, I have to go with Nas. He’s the feature creature. That’s a tough one. Nas is the youngest veteran in the whole hip-hop game. He’s a priest, a revolutionary emcee. He’s well-rounded.
Small Forward: Jadakiss
I’ve got Jada at the small forward. Kiss ain’t even gonna miss that three-pointer. He’s not going to miss it. He knows he’s the top five. That’s a whole ‘nother story. It’s ill when you know you’re the top five.
Power Forward: 50 Cent
I have to put 50 Cent in there. 50 used to play football in real life. He definitely has that power forward energy. That’s where all that muscular sh*t comes from, all that football sh*t from when he was younger.
If you put f*cking KRS-One right there, nobody’s going through him. He’s my center. It’s like everybody is going to respect him.
Coach’s Notes: You can expect to see me at the front seat of all the games. I’ve got the GM status. We right there just overlooking.
