3. NEW ORLEANS DRAFTS ANTHONY DAVIS, AUSTIN RIVERS, BRINGS BACK ERIC GORDON & ACQUIRES RYAN ANDERSON
“Mercy” – Kanye West, Big Sean and Pusha-T feat. 2 Chainz
Leading up to the draft, this joint applied solely to Anthony Davis. A couple months later and “Mercy” relates to the New Orleans Hornets as a whole. Since David Stern engineered the Chris Paul trade, he has 29 other squads jealous of the package they got for their former superstar. Orlando Magic fans probably wish Stern was calling the shots there instead of Rob Hennigan.
Seemingly overnight, the Hornets have transformed from a place of pity to an exciting, promising upstart. These Big Sean verses describe their recent events:
Whoa, make the ground move, that’s an ass quake
Built a house on that ass, that’s an ass state
Finally got paid, now I need shade and vacay
(And ni$&@s still hating) so much I need an AK
