Blast From The Past!: Basketball Raps Edition

This is one of my favorite commercials from back in the day. It's the first thing I think of whenever someone says Tim Duncan or Kobe Bryant. Yeah I know, future hall of famers, fantastic basketball players, best in the history of the game, blah blah blah. Fuck that shit & obey your thirst.

What made me like that commercial even more is the realization that it's a movie reference.

This scene is from Wild Style, the first hip hop movie EVER. It's very much a film of it's time, but I definitely think it's worth a watch for anyone interested in hip hop or the 80s. It features some great early hip hop performances and art from some of the originators of their respective games.
