A Whole New Approach: Knicks' top pick Kristaps Porzingis shows off his rapping skills
Friday June 26th, 2015

The newest member of the New York Knicks may not have gotten a very warm welcome to the NBA on Thursday night, but he is definitely making good on his promise to turn those boos into applause.

First, the Latvian big man was discovered to be a big fan of World Star Hip Hop, which definitely bought him some leeway, and now there is a video of him rapping along with the Chamillionaire's 2005 hip-hop classic "Ridin'."

The song seems to be a perfect anthem for Porzingis, because one, his music is so loud and two, they are definitely hatin'.
