SWORD MAGAZINE 125
Who’s your favorite current artist or genre right now?
Jordan Clarkson: My favorite current artist would be Travis
Scott right now. He has a good album “Astroworld.” He’s
had a few good albums.
Cedi Osman: Right now, Justin
Timberlake. I listen to him a lot.
He’s one of my favorite artists.
Channing Frye: Man, I listen to
so much different music. It was
one of Richard (Jefferson)’s pet
peeves -- because on shuffle you
would get like anything from
John Coltrane to Outkast to
Deadmau5 to Snoop to Kendrick
Lamar to WuTang to Young Jeezy.
Like, I grew up with a lot of
different music, so it just
depends on my mood. Like at
night, I like to listen to Spotify:
The State of Jazz. And then if I’m
with my kids at the pool, I’ll listen
like Nu-disco. And then if I’m working out, doing cardio, I’ll
listen to a lot of EDM, house music.
Collin Sexton: My favorite current artist right now is Meek Mill.
George Hill: Well I like different genres; I’m a big R&B and
country guy. So if I’m listening to R&B, I’m a big fan of Chris
Brown. If I’m listening to country, I’m Dustin Lynch, Luke
Bryan and Thomas Rhett. And outside of those four artists,
if I go to gospel, I’m going to my big brother, Deitrick
So, out of those four or five artists, that’s all that plays on
Rodney Hood: My favorite current artist would have to be J.
Cole. I love J. Cole’s music.
Larry Nance Jr.: My favorite artist right now is Logic.
Billy Preston: My favorite current
artist is NBA YoungBoy.
Sam Dekker: I’m pretty much
all over the place, but before a
game it’s mostly hip-hop and
rap. When I’m driving to work in
the morning, maybe something
a little more mellow -- maybe a
little country, maybe a little soft
But if I put my phone on shuffle,
it’s gonna be mostly rap.
JR Smith: Well, when I’ve
warmed up pre-game over the
last three years, I’ve listened to
the same songs, same album,
over and over again.
Now it’s to the point where I know how I’m shooting
depending on what track I get to and what point of that
song that I get to.
What’s the album and artist?
Smith: I can’t say.
Who’s your favorite musical artist of all-time?
Osman: Of all-time? Michael Jackson. I mean, he’s the King
Clarkson: I don’t have a favorite artist of all-time. I’m all
over the place with my music.
Nance: All-time would be J. Cole.
Frye: My favorite artist of all time would be John Coltrane.
I love Outkast, as well. Obviously, I grew up in the Snoop
Dogg West Coast rap era. I like Amy Winehouse.
And then one of my boys is, like, in Portugal the Man. That’s
my guy. So those guys are great dudes. I love their music. I
liked their music before they got famous, and now they’re
Hood: Favorite artist of all-time would have to be Lil Wayne.
