Like Drake and Cardi B before her, Sexyy Red name drops NBA Champion, MVP, and basketball’s greatest shooter, Steph Curry, on her hit “SkeeYee”. On the record Red raps ““N##### tryna shoot they shot, Stephen Curry,” referencing the 4 Time Champs legacy as a shooter of the basketball.
In a recent discussion with Vibe, the Golden State Warrior gave his reaction to the name drop. “When Sexxy Red did it, I just started laughing. I don’t know. I had never seen her at a basketball game,” Chef said.

Steph joins a list of legendary basketball players that made their way into songs. From Michael, Kobe, Allen Iverson, and Shaq it’s quite an honor when the game recognizes the game and Hip Hop artists honor it with a bar or two. If the Warriors win another championship Steph will surely make his way on more. Maybe he’ll give us a 16 on a Dame Lillard record one day? Golden State kicks off their season against the Phoenix Suns.
