Gobert wouldn’t be the first French basketball player to give hip-hop a shot. Tony Parker notoriously dropped the album TP in 2007. The album wasn’t a critical or commercial success in the U.S. (Parker’s single, “Top of the Game,” did feature Fabolous, though). Gobert says audiences gave Parker “a lot of crap” for the record, but he sees nothing wrong with making the effort. “I was thinking about rapping, but I’d do it by myself before I put an album out. I would do something more private,” Gobert tells B/R Mag.
“Americans don’t want to listen to something different than American,” Gobert says. “That’s the American mentality. In France, we listen to a lot of American music. Most of the time I show my teammates French rap, they think it sucks because they don’t understand it.”
