16. Tiger Woods
Namedrop: “Tiger Woods y’all. It’s all good y’all. Tiger Woods y’all. All good y’all” – Chris Rock “Champagne,” Roll With The New.
Let’s be blunt here. 98% of black people didn’t give a flying fruit loop in a hot bowl of milk about Golf before Eldrick Tiger Woods came into the paint. Before a young Woods came into the game and was slapping old dudes silly all over the back nine, black people and Golf went together like oil and water. If there is anything that Hip-Hop will exploit…er..I mean give props to, it’s a black guy doing something for the first time and kicking a$$ in it. Tiger, Tiger, Tiger, Woods y”all. It’s all good y’all.
