Iman Shumpert is no stranger to releasing his own music.
He previously released a video for a song called "Anarchy," which featured the then-New York Knick wearing the jersey of teammate Carmelo Anthony backwards and doing chin-ups on a Manhattan pedestrian signal. This spring he also did a playoff anthem for his current squad, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Now Shumpert - who just signed a four-year, $40-million contract with the Cavs - has released a new track, "290 West", about 'mo money, 'mo problems.
From Shumpert's SoundCloud page (NSFW lyrics):
This song is the conversation I would have with my audience in the sense that I'm venting to them about my everyday and ongoing battle of being a bread winner back home.
One line in particular goes, "I'm getting pulled from all over/I hear the sad stories and get long texts like 'Dog, I hate to ask for it'."
Unrelated, but isn't it time for Hibbert to change his "Hoya2aPacer" Twitter handle?
