Some may think I’m being sarcastic with that title but hear me out. Here’s why Delonte West, starting guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers, succeeds as a rapper/entertainer.
1.) Delonte actually freestyles. I highly doubt the following video features pre-written rhymes.
2.) He has enough rhythm to get on the radio
Last I checked that’s all you needed to make it big these days. Now for the video in question. In it, Delonte and his cohort go bar for bar about their affinity for KFC’s exquisite cuisine (and condiments.) Yes it’s almost eight minutes long but it’s pure comedy throughout. I won’t spoil the quotables for you all. Just watch and be amazed by Delonte’s clever wordplay and distinctive delivery.
You can at least argue that he’s better than OJ Da Juiceman; or “OJ Jewman” as the kids say.
