Kendrick Lmar’s new album may be good news for Golden State Warriors

Toronto Raptors global ambassador Drake, a Grammy Award-winning artist, succinctly summarised the relationship between musicians and athletes on “Thank Me Now,” his final track from his debut album “Thank Me Later” in 2010.

Drake declared, “I swear that music and sports are so synonyms, cause they want to emulate us, and we want them to emulate me.”

There have been strong parallels in recent years between a certain NBA team and a certain rapper, both of whom are based on California's West Coast.

(Cue “California Love” by 2Pac and Dr. Dre).

Earlier this month, Compton, California, native Kendrick Lamar released his fifth studio album, “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers.”

Here's where the fun begins:

Golden State's championship winning years (2015, 2017, 2018, 2018) are aligned with Lamar’s three previous albums (“To Pimp a Butterfly,” DAMN,” Black Panther The Album”) as Reddit user unanimous30 noted.

The cherry on top was that all three of these albums reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts. His latest album also reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

Although history seems to favor the Warriors, only time will tell if this trend will continue in 2019.
