Jeremy Lin Reveals What Hip Hop Artist Gets Him Motivated To Play Before Games. You Might Be Surprised [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

Jeremy Lin is like a lot of other 23-year old guys in some ways. He loves sports and hip-hop. But he's also quite unique. He's a star player in the world's biggest media market and he shuns mainstream music for Christian.

 

In a recent interview with Fuse, the New York Knicks guard spoke about what artist's are on his current playlist.

 

"An artist you gotta check out is Lecrae, he's a Christian rapper, just raps a lot about the Gospel, and about Christian music," Lin said. "I really enjoy his lyrics as well, so if you're a big lyrics guy, I think that'd be a good fit for you. I listen to something that mellows me out. Hillsong is a Christian band, and they play a lotta contemporary Christian music. I listen to them to remind myself why I'm playing the game, and remind myself I'm playing to glorify God. I really try to just focus on that. I try not to get too hyped up otherwise I find myself kinda burned out before the game or going into the game with a little too much energy playing out of character. So I try to slow it down a little bit."
