Of all the Drake songs to remix, Cleveland Cavalier and former New York Knick Iman Shumpert remixes “Hotline Bling.” Not “Jumpman.” But “Hotline Bling.” I’m questioning if Shumpert is even a basketball player.

Calling it “Highlight Reel,” Iman shares the story of working hard to secure his $40 million contract using a loooooot of auntotune and off-beat flows. Shumpert also mentions why he’s wearing a pink cast (which he’s got after surgery on his wrist): he’s helping cancer awareness. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, which is why everything in the NFL is pink, so Iman wanted to add to the awareness.

This isn’t the first time Iman has handled the mic — he’s been release music on a larger scale since his rookie year four years ago. Check out his SoundCloud, and listen to his remix of “Hotline Bling” below.
