Rap artist Henry Ogirri is from Springfield, Mass. -- aka the birthplace of basketball -- and played hoops professionally, and he just so happens to have a cousin who is an assistant coach at the University of Kentucky.
You can probably guess where this is headed.
Ogirri turned his passion for the game and Wildcats basketball into "Drive for 9," an unofficial theme song for Big Blue Nation. The YouTube video of the song has already captivated the fan base, receiving more than 21,000 views, along with coverage from several national outlets.
