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.
