Allen Iverson and Jadakiss Debate Top 5 in Hip Hop and Hoops

“Top 5, Dead or Alive and that’s just off one LP”

AI and Jadakiss have made a great team for over 10 years now, originally hooking up for a groundbreaking Reebok commercial that featured the new AI kicks while Jada gave the world some of his signature rhymes. As an adult, still catch myself dribbling a ball at the gym with those handles in mind that only Iverson could pull off with such grace and style. The two hooked up a few times continuing to blend the perfect marriage between hoops and hip hop, even trading verses in the commercials over the years so we had to find out who AI put in his Top 5 for both “sports”.

We won’t offer up any spoilers on who landed on his Top 5 NBA player and rapper list, you’ll just have to press play below to find out!
