Video of Steve Francis’ Rap Song ‘Finer Things’

This is amazing, and hilarious. Former NBA star Steve Francis is now apparently a rapper.

    Definitely entertaining, Francis waits till he gets about thirty to start a rap career, lol.

  • IDOT

    should have stuck with basketball.

    ^ but with that, very enjoyable. Whether it’s good or not, I have been thoroughly entertained.

  • BasketballJunkie

    sounds like ja rule gave him one of his songs from 2006. lol.
    Wack with a capital W!

    Just once I’d like to see a baller turned rapper rap 16 bars about something other than material wealth.

  • IamYOU

    Him and Iverson were my idols growing up.. smh

  • Fat Lever

    This is exactly how I would picture Cookie Monster would sound behind the mic. And, is he trying to do the rapper in the carribean video that TI did on Why You Wanna about 6 years ago? Looks like Stevie is still living in the 2005-2006 era.

    I’m so done with rap music pertaining to “finer things.” We get it. Your life doesn’t suck. Now maybe you should wax poetic for a second and talk about some real world issues and problems.
    On that note though,
    “You betta git use to the fineeeer thingssss!”

  • Starbury

    He shouldve worn his Starbury’s

  • Dungeon Family

    In Other news I heard Chris Bosh was gonna remix Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” and Kwame Brown was gonna remix Waka’s “No Hands”

    I’m confused. I didn’t see Cuttino even once. I thought they were joined at the hip.

    oh my lord

    I miss hip-hop…

  • Al A.

    Steve Francis is gonna be a sad sight to see when that NBA money runs out.

  • fruizm

    @Fat Lever…haha thats exactly what this video reminds of…the 2005 era! Im suprised hes not wearing a FUBU jersey!!

    Jesus that Is just awful.

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    Sounds like all the other rap crap to me personally. If he had not played basketball first, he would be making money talking about renting cars, rings, houses and sporting them in videos for people to waste their money on their songs to get themselves hype like everybody else. BOOK IT!!

    “finer thangs” obviously dosnt apply to HD cameras, 360p? c’mon Franchise.

  • jedi420

    Won’t even waste too many words on how horrible that was.. Instead I’ll remember one of my favorite NBA games I ever attended that involved Steve Francis.. his first game in Vancouver after refusing to play for them lol, it was so awesome dude got booed so hard..


  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Lol @ everyone who watched this.

  • http://www.slamonline.com JaySingh

    The 2000-2006 era of music was the best of the 2000′s not this new bubble game rap stuff we have, you can make a damn song about anything these days and it’ll be a hit, not saying Francis did great here but he didn’t try doing some of this new ish, he kept it real music like this needs to come back it was one of the best eras I loved it. @Fruizm: Fubu jerseys were out in like 2004 bro, this feels like an old school from 06 and I love that hopefully hip-hop can at least go back to that this new stuff is garbage. Other then that not bad?
