EDITORS’ NOTES

It’s well known that rappers want to be ballers and ballers want to be rappers. Legends of the microphone converge on the Uncle Drew soundtrack, from the Kyrie Irving soda-ad campaign turned major motion picture. New York—the birthplace of street ball—figures heavily. A$AP Ferg, A$AP Rocky, and Dipset put it down for Harlem with rhymes as timeless as a throwback jersey. Hungry hip-hop rookies GoldLink and Leikeli47 and rising R&B stars Khalid and Nao represent the youth movement. And, wait—is that Irving dropping bars with LunchMoney Lewis on “Ridiculous”? Yes, it is.
