Video: Metta World Peace’s “Represented,” an Unintentional Rap Parody

Los Angeles Lakers starting forward, Metta World Peace, is no stranger to the music world. In fact, when it comes to music, he’s got “this disease called passion,” as he touts in his latest rap video, “Represented.”

If the visuals (repetitive, in-your-face Word-Art typography laid over a shirtless Artest) aren’t enough to make you laugh, listen closely to the lyrics. The NBA player asserts that if he “don’t make music, I’m probably dyin’…make another track, that’s like vitamins for me.” With all those nutrients, it’s no wonder he’s so good on the court.

And if anyone were to ask him why he raps (which is not such an unfair question), he’s got the perfect response prepared: “Yo, why you listenin’ to music?”

While he may not have mastered the rap game, World Peace does operate his own brand management group, Artest Media Group (AMG).

Be on the lookout for future rap videos from the artist – or for a safer bet, just watch the Lakers.
