Lou Williams, notorious for being a great scorer and sixth man, had (or maybe still has) a rap career as well. During his time in Philly, he decided to get in the booth and drop some verses with Philly native Meek Mill. If you ask me, I think Williams wanted to follow the footsteps of one his favorite players, Allen Iverson, who also made an attempt at a rap career.
After a remix of Hustle Hard (as seen below), Lou Williams got on a few more tracks with Meek Mill and some other Philly rappers. Gillie Da Kid, Young Chris, and even Desean Jackson were on a few tracks with Williams. It was almost as if Williams grew up in Philly and he was just out there having a good time with his hometown crew.
Fast forward to 2015, and now he’s in Toronto trying to help the Raptors get to the promised land. I believe there’s another famous rapper there as well. Isn’t his name something like Aubrey Graham? I think he raps and sings a few songs here and there. Either way, maybe LouWill can get on another track and bring some playoff hype to Toronto this season. I know if I heard a track that was by Drake and featured LouWill, I’d be over here dancing like this:
