Matthew Dellavedova now has his own rap tribute song

Cleveland.com: Delly is now a rap subject.

Cleveland.com: Delly is now a rap subject.

Matthew Dellavedova has earned himself a lot of fans (and subsequently a lot of enemies) with his performances during the Cavs Playoff series against the Chicago Bulls and the Atlanta Hawks.

His hustle plays, defensive effort and ‘never say die’ attitude has lead to this awesome rap track being made about him.

Hopefully it’ll be the first of many so that a “Welcome to Dellyville” mixtape can be created.

“All I do is hustle like Delly, I’m just trying to stay ready, till I die imma hustle like Delly.”

It’s got a nice ring to it.

This Steph Curry parody of ‘Let it Be’ is all of the inspirational tears

Everyone get out your lighters and sway along to this classic Steph Curry tune!

This JR Smith Cleveland rap track is basically why the Internet was invented

jrsmith A couple of years ago, Milford Jerome released this awesome J.R. Smith rap track called ‘So Right’. Naturally, now that JR is in Cleveland, we needed a remix. It’s just so right that we now do. “I’m sorry Phil Jackson, I am for real.” is the greatest shout-out to OutKast that I’ll ever hear in an NBA related parody rap track. #FromEveryWhichAngle https://youtu.be/6364ItTQwUw
