When you think of hip-hop and Rap music in Detroit you think of names like the Insane Clown Posse, 50 Cent, Eminem, Big Sean, Lizzo and more.

Back before the famous Rap Supergroups, the likes of Joe Dumars, Isaiah Thomas, Dennis Rodman, Bill Laimbeer, Chuck Nevitt, and Head Coach Chuck Daly were dropping straight fire to get people to shop at Dunham's.

The video itself is hilarious and filled with awful lip-syncing, but for some reason, this works for me. I wouldn't say I'm now compelled to go in and buy shoes from them, but I think this is something that needs to make a comeback.

Why don't sports teams record crappy, corny songs about themselves or their team anymore? The Detroit Tigers and the Chicago Bears were famous for doing things like this and I feel it's something that needs to make a return. It would make sports a lot more appealing.
