One could probably say that aside from Michael Jordan, no basketball player has been more connected to the hip-hop genre in the last 25 years than Allen Iverson. So it's no surprise to see that an up-and-coming rapper from East Memphis, Tennessee wrote an entire song about the once beloved and currently struggling Philadelphia 76ers legend.

We're not going to lie and act like we had heard of Don Trip prior to stumbling across his new track titled "Allen Iverson," but the Internet is a wealth of information, so we searched a little. The Source has an interview with him from back in December of 2010 in which he shares that the comparison he gets most frequently is to Lil Wayne, a Sixers watcher himself.
His A.I. track mixes in old school clips from Iverson's days as a Sixer, including the infamous "practice" rant alongside original lyrics that Trip seems to relate to.
As a barely casual rap fan, I'd say it's not actually that bad.
