You get just as much play from the ladies as well!
I don't know about this... a rap star can easily take a year off just to chill while his albums sell and he's still getting paid... an NBA star can't take a year off... and he's got off season workouts as well as a grueling NBA season...
I would've said that about Football players opposed to other sports who play 82 games or double more in the MLB. However, I retract that statement about football after living acrosss the street from the Dolphins training camp and observing their practices. "X" amount of days during the week for grueling like practices. Hell, I think if I got hit once or twice like that after an hour of basics" I would DIE! Hell, Basic, I would probably die in that first!
i am kinda biased because i hate pro bb, but a rapper fo sho....no doubt..with all the money a rapper can make on just one album compared to years and years and years of playing in the nba, rappers have it made
Chuck Norris once lost his keys and couldn't remember where he put them. So he tortured himself for half an hour until he gave up their location.
The funny thing about pro sports is that sucky guys do make it in, but then again some of them were once #1 draft picks that somehow just didn't do well in the pro leagues. Since I know baseball more than anything else, I can't really cite basketball examples.
But for every sucky guy that somehow shoes in due to salary cap or whatever, there are dozens of street dominating 'pimps' that never make it.
I assume some of this comes down to talent scouting, they probably see something they like, and maybe it just doesn't pan out like they thought it would.

I more or less agree with you greeky, but you have to realize that making music is a lot of hard work as well, it ain't all peaches and cream like they make it look. I guarantee you lots of work goes into that shit
