New York Knicks small forward Iman Shumpert is one of many high profile celebrities to offer their take on Kendrick’s controversial verse …
The Knicks player noted that he found motivation in Kendrick Lamar’s highly publicized lines.
“When Kendrick came with that “Control” verse I got excited and said, ‘That’s what the game’s been missing!'” Shumpert admitted.
The basketball star is a fan of rap and is set to take a shot at releasing a project of his own. As of late, he has been carefully plotting the best way to let the world hear his rhymes.
According to Shumpert’s business consultant Andrew “Ace” Thomas: “Shump and I had discussions and plans on how to go about letting the world know he can rap so we reached out to Dreamchasers (Meek Mills’ company) and recorded [a] verse which was later posted on hotnewhiphop.com. This not your typical situation — ballplayer trying to rap cuz he got money; he can rap. You’re going to see more from him real soon.”
