I would be telling a bold face lie, If  I claimed that I DID.

On Friday he released some new music on his soundcloud page.

Per Iman Shumpert soundcloud-He describes his music:

The point of the song was to make the listener feel like they’re riding with me back home in [Chicago] as we head out west to my mother’s house. This song is the conversation I would have with my audience in the sense that I’m venting to them about my everyday and ongoing battle of being a bread winner back home.
— Iman Shumpert

290 West beat is one of my favorites.

I know many can relate with these lyrics.

Blood relatives need help and don’t want to ask for it, and them trying not to beg got me feeling like an asshole.”
— Iman Shumpert, 290 West

Iman Shumpert just  re-signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers for $40 million

for the next 4 years.

I can only imagine how many new relatives he has gained since entering the league.

Hold ya head, Iman...
