Allen Iverson’s ‘Practice?’ rant is now a funky electronic song

Thursday July 16th, 2015

As much as the 11 All-Star appearances, the four scoring titles and the MVP award, we remember Allen Iverson for that rant about practice at a press conference in 2002. 

Iverson’s rant has already been sampled in a rap song—a 2013 Action Bronson track off the Blue Chips 2 mixtape—and now it appears in something a little more mellow. 

Electronic producer Skylar Spence (real name Ryan DeRobertis, previously known as Saint Pepsi) has a new track called “Practice” that incorporates A.I.’s incredulous query.

The track is the first single from a compilation assembled to commemorate Carpark Records’ 16th anniversary. The whole record is basketball-themed, so we’ll have to see what they come up with next.
