It's a fruitful time of year for music criticism. The Grammys are mere days in the rearview mirror, and Rihanna’s Super Bowl halftime show performance Sunday evening figures to draw a huge television audience.
Well, add Chiefs coach Andy Reid to the ranks of the nation’s music enthusiasts after a humorous media availability Wednesday afternoon. During the session, former NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall asked Reid to name the three greatest rappers alive.
"Do the Fat Boys count as one rapper?" Reid asked, referencing the 1980s New York trio. "All right, Jay-Z ... I’m missing Master P. I’m giving you all the old ones. Lil Wayne, wasn’t he just at (Arrowhead Stadium)? Who was just at our place?”
The rapper Reid was thinking of wasn't Lil Wayne but Lil Jon, who performed during Kansas City’s divisional-round game against the Jaguars and drew flak from Raiders fans in the process.
“You’ve got to give me an easier question than that, doggone it,” Reid told Marshall.
