Tru Warier: Monta Ellis, “Fulltime Grind”

In case you didn’t know, my beloved Golden State Warriors traded longtime off guard Monta Ellis to the Bucks today for real-life Australian center Andrew Bogut. While I do think this is a good trade, I will miss watching the electrifying combo guard immensely. As frustrating as he could be at times, he was an absolute offensive savant who made some of the most incredible plays I’ve ever seen. But as this is a music blog, I wanted to focus on the Mississippi native’s rap career, peaking with this collaboration with Southern hip-hop legend Bun B and some dude named Redboi. Yeah, Monta’s flow is a little clunky, but I’ll put this track up against almost any other by an athlete (save: “Shoot, Pass, Slam”). And whatever. I love the dude. Best of luck bro, and thanks for the memories. I look forward to watching a backcourt of Young Money and Monta jack up terrible shots, not play any defense, and make a handful of the most ridiculous plays you’ve ever seen. Have fun with that Scott Skiles.
