Hip-Hop and wrestling have this sort of unspoken bond that connects through the lyrics, concepts, song titles, videos, etc. It’s evident that plenty of rappers were fans of the entertaining sport at some point in their life, so bridging a new gap is Sermon’s Domain’s My Favorite Wrestler segment. An artist steps into the ring to discuss their favorite wrestler as well as several other factors (moments, matches, feuds, slogans and impact the wrestler had on their career).
The first installment features a Harlemite who has made his love for wrestling clear through songs like “New Jack” and “Lo Horsemen.” Smoke Dza sat down with SD in the back room of Recess clothing store in the U-District in Seattle a couple weeks ago. His favorite is arguably the best wrestler of all time with a career that has spawned over 30 years and still continues today. Say your prayers, eat your vitamins and watch it above.
