Kevin Durant Discusses Rappers Name Dropping Him; Names Favorite Rapper

By HHL Editors

When we think about Kevin Durant and Hip Hop, we think of his feud with Lil B.

But, really, much more famous rappers have said positive things about the now-Warrior.

Durant sat down with Rap Genius and spoke on some of his high profile shout outs.

Here are a few of his comments:

Jay Z's 'Crown'-- "It's a new day, hit up KD."

That was wild. When I heard that one I was like—Jay Z, that’s somebody I’ve been listening to since I was 10 years old. I didn’t care what the beat sound like or anything. It was just that he put my name in the song. That was a moment for me.
Drake's 'Weston Road Flows' -- "A lot of people just hit me up when my name is mentioned/Shout out to KD, we relate, we get the same attention."

When I have a game, he texts me or Snapchats me and we talk about stuff. I’m sure when he got in the booth, he was feeling it a little bit and put it in there. It went together nice.
J.Cole's 'Fire Squad' -- 'Meets '02 Lil Wayne, in a new white tee/Meets KD, ain't no nigga that can shoot like me'

J. Cole, I feel as though he’s in the top tier of rappers. You gotta do a lot of work to catch up with him. He can play [basketball] a bit, he can play. There’s a few guys that can play and there’s a few guys that’s just flat-out terrible. But he can play.
While J. Cole is in KD's top tier, he can only have one favorite rapper, and that's ... Drake.
