Fabolous on ESPN’s First Take

The crossover of rappers on First Take isn’t getting old for me and next up to return to the debate desk is Fabolous. Here, he talks about the surging Cowboys and if they’re for real… and also some Kobe Bryant discussion too. Plus, Fab was there to plug what’s shaping up to be a dope concert for the 30th Anniversary of Def Jam.


Lil Wayne “Sportscenter Freestyle” + First Take

Lil Wayne took over ESPN today, taking a small break from the Drake vs. Lil Wayne Tour to talk some sports… and OH, also freestyle over the SportsCenter theme. A true freestyle too — not long, only about 30 seconds, but pretty fresh given the context. Weezy raps about his attire, name-drops the teams he’s rooting for, and ends it all with a fresh, timely punchline. I’ll let it surprise you as it did me.

Wayne also joined Skip, Stephen A., and Cari Champion for a debate on First Take. This is always fun when they bring rappers (or Kevin Hart) on set to talk about the NBA and NFL. In the first video, Wayne makes some bold claims like calling Mario Chalmers “a beast” and Aaron Rodgers the best quarterback in the NFL. The talk continues about the Lakers and Drake & the Raptors in part 2. Enjoyable viewings for any sports fan who may have missed it this morning.
