Kevin Durant seems to be able to do anything these days. He led the Oklahoma City Thunder to the NBA Finals, won a gold medal, has a movie coming out that he stars in and now is even rapping with Stephen Jackson.
Jackson has a rap album that will be coming out at the end of this month or the beginning of next month. Durant will be somewhat a part of it.
You mentioned that KD is on the album. How do you kind of stay away from getting grouped in with all of the other NBA players who try their hand at rapping? A lot of people have this and that to say about players who make music, so how do you kind of stand alone on that?
I don’t care, I don’t pay attention to it, I’m me. Who cares what people say? I mean, people’s opinions are like buttholes—everybody has one. I don’t even pay it attention.
So Durant’s kind of nice with it?
Yeah, KD can go, man. I respect him for even getting on the track with me, because a lot of athletes are scared to even get on the same song with me ’cause they feel I’m gonna embarrass them. I’m just happy he took the time to do it, and he really killed the verse so a lot of people are gonna be surprised by it.
It’s good to see Durant not stepping down from the challenge of getting on the same song as Jackson, as intimidating as that may sound.
Durant and Jackson had a little history on the basketball court together in the Western Conference Finals. Jackson was a late pickup for the San Antonio Spurs last season and was great for them in the playoffs, especially against the Thunder, and was matched up with Durant a lot in the series.
Durant’s movie ‘Thunderstruck’ will be hitting theatres Aug. 24 and a new scene from it has been released.
Durant is the man. This movie will be amazing and only because of Durant’s acting skills, which should be all-time.
