The second installment of the Namedrop Series is here! Recently, New York Giants punter Brad Wing got a shoutout from Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj on the Calvin Harris song “Skrt On Me.” This namderop was a form of reciprocation for Wing, who shouted out Minaj on his Instagram account in June. While that shoutout was more of a chance occurrence, others have more depth to them, like Drake namedropping Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in his hit song “Fake Love.” Over the past few years, the two stars have formed one of the more notable athlete-musician friendships in pop culture.
“I’ma land the jump, Yao Mingin the dunk, And I’m playing the field, Brad Wingin the punt” – Nicki Minaj, “Skrt On Me”
“Said she need a ring like Carmelo” – Frank Ocean, “Nikes”
“I still felt like a saint when I drew that breeze” – Mick Jenkins, “Shipwrecked”
