Kristaps Porzingis recently had his American dream become a reality when the New York Knicks selected him with the 4th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. In true American fashion, Knicks fans all across the world striked down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger, voicing their disapproval of Phil Jackson's roster management.
In support of their Latvian brother, a rap group called Transleiteris are also chasing their American dream, as they are going down the path of becoming a successful rapper by saying things no one (in America) can understand. In true American fashion, their song, aptly named #PORZIŅĢIS, has a high probably of becoming a successful hit record and will set the world on fire.
Seriously, just wait until the 1:00 mark for the hook. (H/T to Tirico Suave)
As always when incredible things find me on the internet, I have takeaways that's worth discussing:
- At the very beginning, I couldn't tell if that was Jazze Pha with a head cold introducing the song or not.
- I really want to attain one of those Latvian national team #9 #PORZIŅĢIS jerseys.
- That beat is all the fire emojis.
- I'm not sure how the scene at the bar has anything to do with Kristaps Porzingis, but it is incredible.
- I have no idea what those black shirts in gold text say, but I want one. XXL please.
This is the beginning of the Kristaps Porzingis era, and if his arrival to America is going to include things like this, I'm here for it.
