Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Welcome to the family, Birdman


Cal palled around with Drake.  The team rubbed elbows with Drake.  Bun B saluted Terrence Jones.  Now it looks like another rap heavyweight (sorry I included Drake under that label) is on board with the Cats.  Cash Money records co-founder Birdman Tweeted out the above message today, officially endorsing Brandon Knight or something.  We can all rejoice that this endorsement could mean good things for Kentucky with all the cool kids on the recruiting trail, but let’s not overlook what is most exciting about it.  Brandon Knight and Bookie are now family and he gets a free pass to collect his Rookie of the Year award in gator boots and a pimped out Gucci suit.

I should note that there’s a possibility that this is in reference to a different Brandon Knight, but I honestly have no idea.  I’m about as cool as herpes anymore.

    Different Brandon Knight. Brandon D’Mitri Knight – friend of Boogie and J Wall. Pay attention.

    In the last two years the guy went double-platinum on one album, & had 10+ songs that were his or he was featured on go Top 10. You can call Drake a rap heavyweight at this point. And he reps the Blue. Much cooler than herpes.

    Bun B giving props to Terrance Jones is hard to top in my book. Cash Money is old and all the people on Young Money suck. Yes lil Wayne and all those people are garbage. Bun B and Pimp C(rip) the Underground Kings are Southern Legends. Too Hard to Swallow and Super Tight are southern classics.

    Yea Drake is a rap heavyweight now. He kills everything, and make other peoples song that much better just by singing on the hook.

    Is anyone concerned that “birdman” is from Louisville and has “bird” in his name? Better watch out Brandon. You hang with card fans and ya get the poops, the itchy scratchy’s, and the coodies.

    finds it funny that if the table was turned and a rapper would have gave a shout out to an UofL athlete then they would be considered ghetto or thug, however if a rapper shows love to a UofK athlete then its all good … just saying
