NBA players who are also musicians...should just play ball, especially the rappers.

Ok I'll admit there are rappers who are good musicians, like Wyclef, but I just didn't like how it was perpetuated that if one is a rapper that makes them a musician also.

If a songwriter can be considered a musician, I don't see why a rapper can't be either. And I'm not talking about crap like Soulja Boy or Hurricane Chris.

I think it's pretty close-minded to say that only people who can play instruments are considered 'musicians'.

I kind of remember Tariq Abdul Wahad (or Olivier Saint Jean) played the acoustic guitar well enough to release an album.

I'm fairly certain Brian Williams/Bison Dele was, I know his father was Eugene Williams from The Platters.

Oh, please. Most rappers steal beats, they don't compose shhhit. Only guys like Wyclef and Andre 3000 compose their own music/beats.

I'll say that most rappers are writers and lyricists. But not musicians.
