World Football And The Rap Game Aren’t All That Different

I recently came across a year-old article on Urbantimes that listed 10 footballers and their rapping equivalents. Although I thought the list was very clever and certainly accurate to a certain extent, some of the comparisons were still a bit of a reach and could definitely use an update. I mean, yeah Nas is absolutely Pirlo all day. Ok fine, CR7 is Drake. But saying Kanye West is Ibrahimovic?!? You’re high. Plus there’s no way in hell Ronaldinho is Eminem; a Brazilian footballer can’t be compared to a white rapper, it’s the law. Not to mention the author’s ever-present Manchester United bias was distracting to say the least.

So after hours of beer-fueled discussion with my brother who knows more about football and Hip Hop than I do, a pretty solid list of comparisons was forged. And yes, we left our Liverpool bias at the door! Know a lot about Hip Hop but not world football? Vice-versa? Check this out and let us know what you think…
