The Story of Penny Hardaway - As Told by Pusha-T

The Story of Penny Hardaway – As Told by Pusha-T Earlier today I was riding in my car listening to Pusha- T’s new album, Daytona. The first song on the album is a banger entitled “If You Know, You Know.” It’s probably my favorite song on the album because of its classic King Push. The entire song is about Pusha using lingo and describing experiences that only people associated with the drug trade around a certain time can understand. That’s the part of the concept that speaks to me. Here’s a guy rapping about something that he’s truly experienced. It’s a song about real life. It’s a song about struggle. It’s a song about credibility.

When it comes to the City of Memphis and Tiger Basketball, no one has more credibility than Penny Hardaway. Ultimately, credibility is the reason Hardaway landed the head coaching job. What former coach, Tubby Smith, found out is that it’s not enough to have mastered the X’s and O’s in this city. Memphians need someone who gets us. We need someone who will represent us. Penny fits that description better than anyone else could. He represented us when he chose to play for the Tigers. He continued to represent us throughout his pro career. And now, all these years later, he’s choosing to represent us again. What’s more is that through it all, Hardaway hasn’t lost his relatability.
