When I first fell in love with basketball, I wanted to watch every movie with any mention of it. There was a slew of basketball movies: White Men Can't Jump, Blue Chips, and then this movie with 2Pac Shakur, Above the Rim.
The last movie, I didn't get at all. I thought it was violent, they said lots of bad words, and I was scared of 2Pac.
Dom had been bumping this song a few months ago, and I was too lazy to look up another 2Pac song.
Now I came across this song when looking for a lighthearted youtube comment about how violent the streetball game portrayed in Above the Rim was, "these niggaz is playin' NBA Blitz." I came across the above clip, and for various folks in my life I think it makes sense.
