Kristaps Porzingis may have gotten booed mercilessly on draft night, but the Knicks first-round pick is doing what he can to win over fans since, with his love of hip-hop.
Starting with his love of World Star Hip-Hop and a clip of him rapping along with Chamillionaire's hit “Ridin’” and then graduating to his own rap anthem created by a Latvian hip-hop group, Porzingis is showing his love of the New York City-born art form.
Now he is showing off his knowledge in a new interview with Knicks.com, during which he deftly identifies a series of rap lyrics. At one point he seems a little less knowledgeable about the previous generation of rap artists, and fans will probably not be happy about his failure to recognize a classic Nas lyric.
