When Rappers rap about…Hockey?

Hockey and Rap Music would be an odd couple.  Imagine those two out to dinner: Hockey with the mullet in all denim; Rap in Gucci with gold chains.  Makes zero sense.  That said; here are 3 rappers who have seamlessly worked hockey refrences into their music

I’m in it to win it like Yzerman. – Kid Rock (Wasting Time)

Kid Rock is from Detroit so this adds up.  Yzerman is a hockey legend in Michigan so it makes sense that Rock would compare himself to the three time Stanley Cup champion.

I’m still walking through the crowds like I cant be touched.  Top back all black Gretzky puck. – Rick Ross (Tears of Joy)

Geography can’t explain this one.  Rozay is from Mississippi and went to university in Florida.   Gretzky was a West Coast guy (with the Kings).  Maybe Ross just loves the idea of comparing himself to the Great One?

By chance I see her in the lobby of the Ritz.  When her man, the one that swings a hockey stick. – Action Bronson (Easy Rider)

Bronson is a strange dude.  A former chef turned rapper.  Is this lyric about Action bumping into a hockey-player-dating-ex of his?  It’s possible.

Rock reps the 'Wings
