While North Carolina is preparing for the ACC tournament, its former point guard, Larry Drew II, is apparently practicing for a rap career.
This twitvid of Drew rapping at his 21st birthday party has surfaced, and although all of the lyrics are difficult to make out, his rap seems to deal partially with his decision to leave UNC. "They tried to tell me just to play my role ... but who wants to stick with a script full of typos?" he raps at one point.
Also, he raps: "The media, they talk but they'll never confront you."
Drew, a junior who began the season as UNC's starting point guard, announced he was transferring in February, four games after he was replaced in the starting lineup by freshman Kendall Marshall. The Tar Heels, now ranked No. 6 in the nation, went on to win the regular-season ACC title without him, and are the top seed in this week's league tourney.
Drew, the son of Atlanta Hawks head coach Larry Drew, has not announced where he will transfer.
