Thread: Michael Phelps Best Athlete in the World

    Default Micheal Phelps listens to Lil Wayne before he Races

    Lil Wayne Is The Music Of Champions, Ask Michael Phelps

    August 13th, 2008 | Author: Aliya Ewing
    The world watched in awe as Michael Phelps set a new Olympic gold standard Wednesday, winning the 10th and 11th titles of his career. Competing in his third Olympics, Phelps surpassed Olympic legends Carl Lewis, Paavo Nurmi, Larysa Latynina, and Mark Spitz, who all won nine golds in their careers respectively.
    As most athletes know, music can help create a winning mind-frame. Boxers often walk out to the ring with their favorite track blaring in the background. Football and basketball teams can usually be found getting amped up in the locker room to a playlist of songs specifically designed to gear them up for the game. So what does an 11-time Olympic gold medalist listen to while readying himself to break more world records? He calls upon the current gold medalist in Hip Hop--Lil Wayne.
    When asked by The Today Show what music he listens to while preparing to swim, Phelps paused before replying "Lil Wayne- 'I'm Me'" which includes the champion-themed lyrics:

    "The hottest under the sun/ aint nobody fuckin' wit me, man/ and you already know that pimpin'/...fuck up my dreams; somebody gon' die tonight"
    and "Aint nothin' gonna stop me, so just envy it/ Hey, I'll accept a friendly quit/ I'm me/ bitch, I'm me/ so who you?/ you're not me/ you're not me/ and I know that aint fair, but i don't care"
    Lil Wayne, a champion in his own right, has sold over 2 million copies of Tha Carter 3 in only eight weeks--a feat almost unheard of in today's slumped music industry.
    HipHopDX congratulates both Phelps and Lil Wayne for their tremendous success.

    Look at it this way:

    Lil Wayne's music is shit. But Phelps listens to it.

    That doesn't make Lil Wayne's music better, it just makes Phelps a pop fan.

    2 phenoms of the modern world, it makes sense they join.

    But the question we must ask now is, would Phelps of won as many Gold medals, if he wasnt listening to "I'm Me", by lil Wayne?

    Sure I'm betting he wouldve won some Golds, but 6 Golds? I'd be willing to bet Wayne is worth 2 of those Golds.

    Prove yourself right, just because he listens to the song, don't mean he wins because of it.
