Even though I am 164 percent positive that this video is some sort of tie-in to the return of Allen Iverson’s first signature shoe, the Reebok Question — can’t wait for May 25, great shoe — it’s kind of amazing that Allen Iverson is still the coolest basketball player you can get to appear in your rap video (AI first pops up at the 0:46 mark). He’s 36 years old, passed his prime in 2008 and hasn’t even been in the NBA the past two seasons, but he’s still one of the best hip-hop signifiers we have. Step your game up, all other players in the history of the NBA..
Also, not a bad song. I’d have preferred the ratio of Swizz Beatz to A$AP Rocky to be switched, but the Araabmuzick beat makes even the Swizziest of verses bearable. Thumbs up all around.
