Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant is a true hip-hop head. The NBA superstar recently talked about his all-time favorite rap albums.
In a new Q&A video, KD put Kanye West, Lauryn Hill, Hot Boyz and Lil Wayne in his all-time list.
“That’s an impossible question,” KD said when asked to name his all-time favorite albums. “Albums that were huge in my life that I can remember, College Dropout was a huge time in my life. I can remember that like it was yesterday. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was a huge part of my life, that’s probably the only album my mom allowed me to listen to as a kid. Hot Boyz, that album, no, I want to say Tha Block Is Hot was the first rap album I ever bought with my own money. I remember where I bought it at, it was right next to a shop and food warehouse and it was a CD store next door in the cut. I can remember it like it was yesterday. My mom gave me an allowance which was really her money but it was mine, and I paid for it. The only thing I paid for was a Lil Wayne CD. Big part. Travis Scott’s first album was huge as well in my life. Yeah, that’s all the albums that probably meant a lot in my life personally.” (Kevin Durant YouTube)
Back in July, Dipset boss Cam’ron showed Durant some respect with one of his throwback jerseys.
In June, fellow Harlem native Dave East hooked up with KD.
Recently, entertainment management company Roc Nation put some respect on Durant’s name.
