Produced by C-Sick and featuring lyrics drawing comparisons between the Big Fundamental's court skills and Tory Lanez' mic skillz, including, "I deserve a check for ballin' like I'm Tim Duncan," the Canadian rapper that isn't Drake dropped the name-dropping homage last Friday.

TD and the most-winning threesome of all time – Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili  – are no strangers to getting props and shout outs in songs. Artists such as Lil Wayne, Chief Keef, Gucci Mane, Action Bronson and Lil Boosie, to name a few, have all upheld the hip-hop adage of "game respects game." The irony, of course, being that TD, TP and Manu are three of the least swag or showy of today's star athletes, preferring to succeed in a poised silence, a humble grace. 



Nevertheless, here's the latest addition into a welcomed catalog of tracks that equate number 21 with flossin', ballin' and just generally being awesome as fuck. Bump this one game day, or any day, as the silver and black race for seis.
