Knicks team captain Amar’e Stoudemire is using this off-season to network with the Hip-Hop elite in hopes of starting a secondary career as a rapper.

According to the NY Daily News, the All-Star power forward began exploring the possibility of a Hip-Hop career due to his friendships with Swizz Beatz and Fabolous. Beatz recently completed a video remake of the well-known 90s Knicks’ theme “Go New York Go,” which featured Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony.

In addition to potential industry connections through girlfriend Ciara, sources with the newspaper indicate Stoudemire would also like to receive production from Lil Jon.

“He’s been telling people he’d love to work with [Lil Jon] although he hasn’t found the right time to sit down with him,” the unidentified source said.

Although NBA players such as Allen Iverson, Shaquille O’Neal and Cedric Cellabos have dabbled in Hip-Hop since the mid 90s, Amar’e Stoudemire would be the first prominent Knick player to do so.

At press time, Stoudemire could not be reached for comment.
