Latvian rappers make Kristaps Porzingis tribute music video

Friday July 3rd, 2015

Just in time for your Fourth of July parties is a new, very strong contender for the "Song of the Summer" title from a Latvian group called Transleiteris, an ode to their country's greatest export Kristaps Porzingis.

The video features the duo rapping while wearing New York Knicks hats in honor of Porzingis's new team intercut with highlights of the big man throwing down some dunks and shaking hands with Adam silver on draft night.

No one here at extra Mustard is fluent in Latvian, so we have no idea what they are rapping about, but they do say "Kristaps Porzingis" about a thousand times, which is good enough for us.

It appears Kristaps himself is a fan, as he tweeted the video out on Friday.
