Coaches Love the Rap Game.

“What sign is this? I don’t want to cause any trouble in South Bend after what happened to Two-Pack.”

The rapper/coach odd coupling continues as Notre Dame head man Mike Brey recently snapped this pic with famous rising rapper 2 Chainz at what looks like a local airport.  It’s hard to say if these two are actually chums, since it looks like something I would ask to take with my favorite singer, Michael Bolton, should I ever run into him in a crowded public place where I knew he wouldn’t cause a scene.  Actual rapper/coach friendships look a little more like this, or this.

But it’s clear that Cal has started yet another trend.  First Frank Martin gushing on Pitbull (he might be the only person to do so), and now Brey with 2 Chainz.  There’s still no indication that their fervor is reciprocated, but hey, gotta start somewhere.

Please, enjoy those performers.  Pitbull might be too busy visiting Wal-Marts in Alaska to hang out in your locker room, but we’re happy for you.  We’re also happy to have Grammy-nominee Drake and Grammy-winner Jay Z as Kentucky fans.

Meanwhile, Kanye West’s favorite team is still Kanye West.

    Who’s this Mike Brey character you speak of? On the flipside, 2 Chainz is pretty good.

    I remember this one time at band camp when we compared rappers. It was so crazy.

    Any rapper that changes his name twice within a 2-year span because his singles flopped is not necessarily a brand-name artist, no pun intended.

    Did he spell “two-pack” like that on purpose?

    If UK is going to adapted a Rap, and hand sign, they should use Kentucky native Kasper who Raps ‘ Ksign UK Basketball Anthem’, if you’ve never seen him perform or have never heard it, get ready for the Goose Bumps you’re about to get. Check it out on YouTube

    ( Peace Sign Up, Got To Go Down, Put Your Thumb In The Middle, Gotcha Ksign Now!!), awesome video.

    I’d rather bump 2 Chainz any day over Jay Z or Drake. Never been a big fan of Jigga’s and Drake is flat out awful. I’m gonna start a riot.

    Is it just me, or does 2 chains look like Marquis Teague in costume?
