NBA Players' Playoffs Playlists Are Heavy On Drake, Kendrick Lamar


The 2013 NBA Playoffs kick off on Saturday (April 20) with a few tough first-round match-ups. The Milwaukee Bucks will go up against reigning champions the Miami Heat, while the Golden State Warriors will face off against the Denver Nuggets without much previous experience in playoffs, but everyone loves a good upset, right? To get prepped for playoff season a few players from teams like the Warriors, Nuggets, Hawks, Bucks and Grizzles shared their pre-game playlists with RapFix. Not surprisingly, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and even Rocko made a few appearances, but we weren't expecting to see Justin Timberlake in rotation. See the picks below.
