The NBA and Hip-Hop have always been on two sides of the same coin. Each NBA city, for the most part, has an ambassador – a spokesperson who blatantly represents the squad via game time appearances, social media, or creating/remixing songs to hype the city up come playoff time.

Dime Magazine decided to jump in on the action and present redesigned NBA logos; each with a Hip-Hop representative from their designated areas. However, it’s no surprise here since they took the opportunity to redesign the NBA logos with Superheroes as well. Superheroes aside, here’s a look at some of the NBA Playoff teams with their Hip-Hop representative logos.
Although each NBA city earned a cartooned version of their respective representatives, I feel that Drake jumps the boat to Golden State every so often. So there’s a chance that there could have been a secondary logo. Just kidding.
All jokes aside, I wonder if each city is satisfied with the Dime Magazine picks. Is there another rapper that you had in mind that could suffice?
