As an avid fan of the 1998-2003 era of Cash Money Records, let me tell you that this is the best subliminal lockout zing you’ll ever witness. It’s two NBA players rapping along to the Big Tymers’ “Stay Fly” and it’s a clear shot at the owners and how their despicable behavior won’t stop the Players Union from leading their lives.
“Gator Boots, with the pimped out Gucci suit / Ain’t got no job, but I stay sharp / Can’t pay my rent, cause all my money’s spent / but thats OK, cause I’m still fly” is the “Talking Union” of these troubled times, and Mannie Fresh and Birdman are our Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie. Fight the power. Unity. Other buzzwords.
