The NFL and music have long had crossover appeal, from the “Super Bowl Shuffle” to Deion Sanders‘ hit “Must be the Money.” More recently, Kellen Winslow was a DJ at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
But Detroit Lions linebacker Justin Durant has taken a different direction, serving as a music critic for Detroit’s Metro Times.
From his archives, Durant has called Curtis Mayfield‘s “Superfly” the “best soundtrack ever made.” He even made an iPod playlist to commemorate Calvin Johnson‘s huge contract. Among the selections: “Money To Blow” by Birdman ft. Drake & Lil Wayne, “I Get Money” by 50 Cent, and Shane McMahon‘s old entrance music from the WWF. And of course, that playlist would not have been complete without Sanders’ “Must be the Money.”
