Iman Shumpert Released Highlight Reel (Hotline Bling Remix)

The Cleveland Cavaliers signed free agent shooting guard/ small forward Iman Shumpert to a 4-year, $40 million deal this past summer. Shumpert’s talents, however, go beyond the NBA court. As Cavs fans have come to know over the past couple of months, Shump is also a rapper and likes to make music when he’s not on the NBA floor.

Shumpert announced on Twitter that if he would get enough ‘Retweets’ and ‘Favorites,’ he would release his own remixed version of Drake’s Hotline Bling’ called ‘Highlight Reel.’

Here’s the song via SoundCloud:

Here are the lyrics, courtesy of Scott Sargent from Waiting For Next Year:

Lyrics:

(Spoken: You want me to back up from the mic a little bit?)
(You should…call me)

You gotta call me on my iPhone
‘Cause I won’t answer no DM1
If you don’t get my cell phone
You should keep it short with him

Hook:

I know ya’all love my highlight reel
But understand the work it take
You try to comprehend my mental pain
When I took that L to Golden State2

Verse:

I signed for $40 [million] now I’m cool
I went and got my family straight
I’m finna make my pop my chef
My mother makin’ my foundation

But that’s your handle for a steal
I know my bros gonna run her lane
See me and her we think the same
So you my brother n—— never change, ever

I know they love that highlight reel
That’s why they focused on the jumbotron
Don’t tell me I don’t love this game
Ain’t no thug just know that’s what I’m on

I’m tryin to get that past the real
That surgery that blew my day
I’m fighting [breast] cancer with a cast
That explains the pink colorway3

So please don’t tell me mami, chill
‘Cause we did not grow up the same
And I do not deserve the hate
You should just leave me out your conversations

[DJ] MJ just saved me from a tweak
Before they fine me for a tweet
When I go baseline she gon’ geek
I think that’s like her favorite thing

All I know is when my hotline bling
My ladybug is on my phone
Then midnight lead to early on
She the only one deserve my [tone?]

(F— that flow)
Bump it I got it
Bump it I got it
What’s in your wallet
I’m shakin’ ’em solid
I part like I’m Moses
Rap like a prophet
Whole league want to rap now
Oh look what I started

Lord I’m so (?)
Toast to the (?)
Numbers are full now
Just like my father’s
So I’m an Oak Parker4
I root for Chicago
I lived in the Brownstone5
She grew up in Harlem

That’s just the background
Junior will prosper
I might raise me a lawyer
Or maybe a doctor
You can catch us in Westlake6
At the theatre in Crocker7
So chuck me a deuce up
You can keep all that nonsense

Hook:

I know ya’all love my highlight reel
But understand the work it take
You try to comprehend my mental pain
When I took that L to Golden State
