1. People Who Don’t Rap But Have Rapper Names: Nate Funk.

    By all accounts, former Creighton University basketball guard Nate Funk is more of a rock fan than a rap cat. Nor does he allegedly listen much to tunes that fall into the roots-of-rap musical category with which he shares his bad-ass surname. Actually, to be honest, the ex-Bluejay – a top scorer and one-time MVP in the Missouri Valley Conference – sounds like a dude who’s fed up with folks bringing up all this Funk-y shit. Which is a pity, because Nate dog’s strict G-Code of never discussing groupies or locker room chatter in interviews is on some straight up no-snitching policy that hardcore street dudes respect. A popular figga in Omaha, Nebraska, the “Omaha Funkster”‘s apparent lack of sense of humor ’bout his handle also screams hip-hop. So we guess we’ll just let Nate be, his ridiculously rap-friendly name be damned. Consider us Funk-defied. (Props to Jesse Serwer from LargeUp for the tip.)
