Dwayne Wade is, without a doubt, one of the top professional basketball players of all time but those skills certainly wouldn’t apply in the booth. The star guard hopped on Instagram and entered the #SoGoneChallenge while exhibiting some of the worst rap bars known to man.
To explain for those who don’t follow every single social media trend, the #SoGoneChallenge are personal takes on R&B singer Monica’s timeless classic “So Gone” which was produced by Missy Elliot. During the breakdown in the song, Monica spits fire at a cheating boyfriend which was the first time anyone heard her attempt to rap.
That same breakdown has been the portion where rappers and celebs such as Chance The Rapper, Kevin Hart, Damian Lillard and several others have jumped in with varying but mostly positive results. In fact, Chance’s version of the song has suddenly gone viral and breathing new life into Monica’s 2003 smash hit.
Then there’s Dwyane Wade.
As one can see, he didn’t quite nail it and for what it’s worth rapping isn’t his job. But that hasn’t stopped the boatloads of slander that’s occurring right now. Check below and on the following pages to see some of the chatter. And to get caught up with the challenge itself, follow this link. For what it’s worth, Monica seemed to love Wade’s remix.
