There's something about white people and bad rap music. They go together like white people and figgy pudding. And there's something about sports in particular that tends to bring out their inner Rakim. Because everyone else is doing it, we have compiled a Top 10 list of the most unspeakably terrible yet eminently watchable sports-themed hip-hop videos released to YouTube in 2011. As we look back on the past year, we look forward to another filled with even more misdirected inspiration and delusions of rap grandeur.
Starts off innocently enough, but quickly takes a turn for the psychotic (Derrick Rose might want to check if LegalZoom offers restraining orders). Points for the concept of a Steve Kerr interlude; points off for putting that concept into practice.
The music-buying masses may not be clamoring for a crunk-style, baseball-themed Christian rap that namechecks Bruce Pearl and the Pine Tar Incident, but don't tell that to Vaughn!
Whoever said Philadelphia sports fans are just a bunch of good-for-nothing, no class, women-hating, lowlife degenerate drunkards have never seen this video from an Eagles tailgate. They're good at a cappella freestyle!
The combination of Midwest accents, complete lack of flow, and the repeated awkward use of "haters" sink the debut from this decidedly unKool Keith. Leave the Milwaukee rap game in the competent hands of Coo Coo Cal.
If you're going to defend Jerry Sandusky, best do so with a slow tempo, hushed-toned freestyle rap. Rumor has it Joe Amendola is submitting this video as a character witness.
We know they're just kids, but still, put in a better effort. Tim Tebow, if you ever do hear this, have mercy on their little souls, for they know not yet of proper song structure and lyrical phrasing.
Is there anything worse than overproduced preppy frat rap? Yes, as you will see if you keep scrolling down just a bit more.
Can't always understand what this family of Tigers fans is saying, and not certain if any of it makes sense even, but the message is quite clear - THAT FACE PAINT IS TERRIFYING.
Nothing tops a good dad rap, except of course an embarrassingly bad and slightly creepy dad rap. And when the subject matter is high school field hockey? MOVE OVER, TALKING DOG. There's a new King of the Internet (and you gotta admit, he looks great).
