[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, Atlanta’s DJ Drama rolls out his Philadelphia Bullets.]
Point Guard: Jay-Z
I’m going to have Jay-Z lead my team. I have to go with Hov. I think he’s intimidating. If you know Jay-Z’s coming to play against your team, you have to watch the game footage. You’re probably going to have to have three people stick him. He’s going to be a big body in the game so there’s no getting around him.
Shooting Guard: Andre 3000
For shooting guard, I’ll go with Andre 3000. If you give him the ball at the end of the game, he’s gonna score. He’s gonna score in an amazing way and the fans are going to go wild.
Small Forward: Black Thought
I’ll say for small forward, that’s tough, I’ll go with Black Thought. He’s consistent and he comes to play. It may not be real flashy and he may not do a lot of tricks, but he’ll always give you 20-10 and 8 rebounds a game.
Power Forward: Drake
I would probably have to say Drake. You already know what he’s going to do. Once you give him that rock, you know he’s going to give you that smash record. Whether you’re asking for a hook or a verse, when you need someone to go down in the paint, Drake’s got you.
Center: Rick Ross
I would have to say Rick Ross for my center. I’m basing it off what he’s doing with Maybach Music Group and him being a leader.
