We Reminisce: Magic & Microwave in “13 Johnsons” NBA Rap, 1984

Like I had to remind the guys at work: Not every ’80s rapper was nice. While we’d like to believe we grew up on nothing but Eric B. & Rakim and N.W.A.-quality work, but don’t forget that wackness existed even in the Golden Age. Case in point: This clip from the NBA’s ’83-84 season recap pointing out how many guys in the League had the last name Johnson.

Who was your favorite player with the last name Johnson?

    My new top five rap songs of all time:

    1. Biggie- Juicy
    2. NWA – Straight outta Compton
    3. Nas – It Ain’t hard to tell
    4. Unknown- 13 Johnsons with the same last name
    5. Naughty by Nature – Hip hop hooray

    Why can’t rappers today stop talking about their ice/girls/guns and rap about something smart, like the fact that there were thirteen guys in the NBA with the same last name? I miss the good old days…
