But that hasn’t stopped big-name artists like Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Kool Keith from shouting out San Antonio in some of their hits. On top of SA getting name-dropped in these famous rappers’ music, our own Spurs players like Manu Ginobili and the now-retired Tim Duncan are no strangers to being mentioned in some of the most popular hip-hop tracks out.

DJ Quik – “Jus Lyke Compton”
When we arrived I saw red and blue sweatsuits
When i'm thinkin bout horse dookey and cowboy boots
I guess Texas ain't no different from the rest
And San Antonio, was just waitin to put us to the test
And before it was over the shit got deep
A nigga got shot in the face, and was dead in the street
Then they came in the club thinkin of scrappin
Little did they know that we was packin
Yeah, we was puttin em down and squaring the rest, shit
I even had to wear the bulletproof vest
Now San Antonio…
Yeah, San Antonio…”
