    Default Kurtis Blow's Basketball Song

    Props to old school rapper Kurtis Blow for doing a song about basketball. It's obvious that he has a love for the game. I love this song and i was just listening to it at Youtube. What ya'll think of the song? Has any other rappers done songs about basketball?

    I like the old NBA players Kurtis said on the song. Bell Biv Devoe are the only other black artists i've heard do a song about basketball. They did a song called Above The Rim and it's tight.

    Hey man I love Kurtis Blow. "Throughout Your Years" was my favorite song he did but "Basketball" is still good and the music video was done well.

    Hey what about this song?

    Lol. Nah, they put the Kurtis Blow song in NBA 2K12. Soul In the Hole is too real and raw to make it into a video game. You know they ain't letting no Wu affliliates bless our 360's and PS3's lol..

    Sunset Park and Above The Rim are the best basketball movies. I love those movies. Kadeem Hardison and Marlon Wayans did a basketball movie and I think it was called The 6th Man. It was good. Blue Chips movie with Nick Nolte, Shaquille O'Neal and Penny Hardaway was good.
