Golden State Warriors player Steph Curry shares his thoughts on Sexyy Red’s name-dropping him on her "SkeeYee" single.
Nowadays rappers has referenced the greats in sports within their music, and Golden State Warriors’ point guard, the four-time champion Stephen Curry, is one of the most mentioned.
On Friday (October 20), VIBE shared a portion of its upcoming interview with the Golden State Warriors star, where he discussed being a staple of Hip Hop culture. During the conversation, he singled out a recent shoutout that he found hilarious.
“When Sexxy Red did it, I just started laughing,” he admitted. “I don’t know. I had never seen her at a basketball game.”
A Sexyy Red bar he was talking about is from “SkeeYee” and it goes: “My sister in the backseat with a .30/ N-ggas tryna shoot they shot, Stephen Curry.”
“One of my teammates were asking me the question, ‘How many times do you think your name’s been mentioned in the song?’” he proceeded. “And I was like, ‘I don’t know, but I’m pretty sure there’s probably a website or something that could probably count it for you.’ So he went and looked it up and it was like 106 I think at the time, which was wild to me.”
Steph Curry continued. “Then I started thinking about all the ones that I could remember and it’s either a nickname, like Drake did with ‘Chef Curry with the Pot,’ or I think Future dropped one in the song ‘Mad Max.’ And it’s funny to see how they rhyme it because either they do a nickname, the short name, they use number 30 or they just go with the whole full name and just try to write something," Curry added. “Future did the whole full name Stephen Curry, which is hilarious because he is trying to rhyme it and flow with it. I don’t know, unfortunately, ‘somebody’s shooting something or sharp shooting‘ or whatever the case is… I almost kind of expect it now. They’re going to reference me at some point.”
