RapCast | Awesome Hip Hop Sports Review By Adam Lefkoe

  • Pin It

The September 15th edition of Sportscast focused on Classic Rap – Hip Hop artists and lyrics. Using Twitter to crowd-source moments from the genre, I squeezed in 46 mentions in just a few minutes.

Sports anchor Adam Lefkoe of Louisville’s ABC affiliate, WHAS, takes his job seriously. Yet he also knows how to have fun like no other counterpart in the business.

In his “Sportscast” this past Sunday, Lefkoe — who has devoted previous editions of “Sportscast” to professional wrestling and “Seinfeld” — included 46 hip-hop references in roughly five minutes while recapping the previous day’s Louisville-Kentucky and Western Kentucky and Indiana games (among other sports stories).

  • :09 – “When Charlie Strong woke up this morning, he knew it was a good day.” (Ice Cube, “It Was a Good Day”)
  • 1:24 – “Alabama has stopped, dropped and opened up shop at No. 1.” (DMX, “Ruff Ryders Anthem”)
  • 1:57 – “Max Smith missed most of the second half and he has no diggity or doubt that he will play against the Gators.” (Blackstreet, “No Diggity”)

Of course when Lefkoe was finished, he dropped the miniature mic.
