It must be nice to be Russell Wilson nowadays, in addition to leading the Seahawks to the best record in the NFC, the underdog quarterback is also getting love from rappers like the Legend that is Eminem.
The Seahawks quarterback got his name dropped in Eminem’s new album Marshall Mathers LP2, on a track featuring Rihanna called “The Monster,” with the following lyrics:
I ain’t here to save the (freaking) childrenBut if one kid out of 100 million, Who are going through a struggle feels and then relates, that’s great It’s payback, Russell Wilson falling way back In the draft, turn nothing into something, Still can make that star into gold chump, I will spin Rupelstiltskin in a haystack ….
Wilson was a 3rd round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and has exceeded expectations despite not putting up the same big numbers as last season.
