2 Chainz, rapper (Alabama State)
The lanky MC, then known as Tauheed Epps, played guard for Alabama State’s 1995-96 and '96-97 seasons. While he only averaged 2.8 PPG and 1.6 RPG over his career, he did blow up for 14 points and 7 rebounds against Alcorn State in his second year. Basketball got left behind when he pursued a rap career full-time -- which turned out to be a pretty wise choice. Still, according to the video evidence, 2 Chainz could ball out.
Surprisingly enough, 2 Chainz seems to rap more about bowling than basketball. Best 2 Chainz basketball-related lyric: “ 'Member when I used to play basketball? / Now I'm out here playing ratchet ball, ooo!”
