At first glance, you might not see too many similarities between hip hop and soccer. However, Clint Dempsey of The United State’s men’s soccer team recently hit ESPN’s Highly Questionable. Among normal sports talk, Dempsey spoke on how much Hip Hop has impacted his life.

“I enjoy rapping,” Dempsey says in an interview with ESPN’s Highly Questionable. “The first vehicle I ever had didn’t have a radio in it, so I would rap going to school. My younger brother would always tell me to shut up. So it’s just something I always enjoyed doing.” 

“had a lot of love for Bun B, UGK, Pimp C, listening to Trae [tha Truth], listening to Swisha House. So that really shaped me as a person. That’s what I like to listen to before games.”
