Today’s Art comes from Karmoruu.  We all know Rick Ross is a Heat fan but I had no idea the BDP founder from South Bronx was a Spurs fan.  KRS-One seems like an unlikely person for this piece but he’s actually been involved in a lot of basketball commercials over the years including one of my favorite Nike ads ever – “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.”  The Nike ad from 95 featured KG, Jason Kidd,  Joe Smith, Jimmy Jackson and Eddie Jones playing ball with commentary from The Teacher.

KRS-One also did some raps as Santa Claus in these Nike Reindeer commercials
