Hip hop and basketball often go together like a hand and glove. Over the years, several rappers have forged friendships with NBA stars, even starting their own rap careers. It’s pretty safe to assume that most NBA stars are fans of rap and hip hop. Not so much for the greatest play of all time – Michael Jordan. According to rapper Noreaga, the former Chicago Bulls legend declared how much he hates hip hop at a Def Jam Christmas party.
Sure, the question arises – why was Michael Jordan at a hip hop party if he hates hip hop? Noreaga claims that rappers Redman and Method Man approached Jordan at the party but were ignored by him. Then he later announced to a group of fans that he was not a fan. The question remains – why was he there?
It was also reported that he only likes Jay Z and only spoke to him at the party. Allegedly, he was overheard making explicit remarks towards rap. The story has us asking questions of the NBA legend. We don’t want to believe that it’s true. However, Jordan has the freedom to feel the way he does. Say it isn’t so!
