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.
