WASHINGTON – Former ESPN commentator Rob Parker lost his job after his controversial comments about Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.
To add insult to injury, he’s also getting dissed in a rap song.
The Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg reports Texas rapper Quistar is a friend of RGIII’s and couldn’t stay silent forever after Parker’s comments about Griffin’s racial identity.
The result is a send-up called “Changed the Game,” a tune set to “Changes” by Tupac and in which Quistar says Parker made “a stupid argument” and is now “working at the supermarket.”
Listen to the song below:
Quistar tells the Post that Parker’s comments angered him because kids in his area look up to Griffin instead of lesser role models, and “there was only so long I could hold it in.”
The tune is just one of the tracks on Quistar’s RGIII-themed mixtape, which you can download here.
