HOUSTON (AP) Daryl Morey is not only the general manager of the Houston Rockets and a graduate of MIT, he’s also a fan of Houston’s rap scene.
Morey asked local rappers Slim Thug and Bun B if they could make a remix of the 2005 hit ”3 Kings” for the Rockets, and the pair came through in just one day.
The two did a concert before Houston’s first-round playoff game against Portland across the street from the Toyota Center and dropped the track, which mentions several players by name, to wrap up the show as Morey bobbed his head and sang along.
Slim Thug tells The Associated Press: ”Just wanted to support the team. Bun B gave me a call and said that the general manager liked the 3 Kings so we just got together real quick and made a remix for it just to show love for our team.”
