Bob Costas called last night's Dodgers-Giants game for the MLB Network, and before things kicked off, Harold Reynolds asked Mr. You Should Feel These Nipples who he calls his favorite rapper. (The Robinson Cano deal with Roc Nation naturally made up a good amount of discussion last night.) Costas responded by rapping the lyrics to Ludacris' Chicken-n-Beer classic "Hip-Hop Quotables," hitting the line "And I'm on your record like Bob Costas" to say that he's a fan of the Dirty South.
Don't sell your self short, Bob. You've made a far deeper impact in the world of rap than just that one 2003 song. I was able to find three other instances where you've been name dropped. At this point, you're a true Triple-OG.
"The Last Huzzah" - Danny Brown, Das Racist, Despot, El-P
"Don't love the game, shot clocking above the game/Ballers and shotcallers be calling me Bob Costas"
"We Major" - Domo Genesis
"Rasta; but no dread-head, I'm too proper/I'm breaking down the game for you niggas like Bob Costas"
"I Get Down" - Shad
"While imposters talk and jock like Bob Costas/This colossus is so pompous its preposterous"
And, of course, the original.
