Hot Cheetos & Takis

I was going to attempt to break this amazing video down.  From the "what the heck are Takis?" question to which rapper each kid sounds like. I was also considering a breakdown of the basketball footage since this is, you know, kind of a blog that has ties to basketball.

But then I read Rembert at Grantland and it was so good it made me cry.  Now just posting this amazing video seems good enough for a Nextian.

UPDATE: check out the lyrics directly from their web page and support these kids with a $1 download HERE.

NBA Rappers

Privaledge and Kevin Durant - Wired 

KD sounds pretty good starting at the 1:40 mark.  He certainly is a "young boy who is living old". Great line.

Stephen Jackson aka Stak5 "Shot Caller TRILLmix" Ft. French Montana

Stack Jack can spit, for certain. The video is pretty legit too with the beautiful Milwaukee skyline, Air Jordan 4's, and a nice hotel room suite. How long was Jackson a Buck again?

Louis Williams (NBA Philadelphia 76ers) Freestyle - Imma Boss  

Youtube commentors comment on Youtube that Lou is the best current NBA rapper. And the title suggests that he did this freestyle which is quite impressive.

Well, at least they're all better than a young Kobe:

Jeremy Lin in Taipei

Jeremy Lin was in Taipei a few weeks back to launch his new line of Nike Hyperdunks. The video above shows his body guards leveling his fans as he makse his way through the crowd.

Of course his T-Shirt Rockets jersey was in full force

Jeremy Lin is a bazillionaire. He should be receiving his Illuminati invitation soon and will definitely be speaking at the next Builderberg conference.

Nicolas Batum Nutpunches JC Navarro

Nicolas Batum of France (also of the Portland Trailblazers) certainly gave Juan Carlos Navarro of Espana (formerly of the Grizzlies, now on FC Barcelona) something to flop about.  Espana defeated France and is in the Semi Finals vs. Russia. No word on if Navarro will be fully recovered by then.
