Detroit Red Wings

Playoff Fever

The only other Red Wings fan I've even heard of in B.C. was my brother, and now his "other team" is the Habs.

Rappers Wearing Hockey Jerseys in Music Videos

Rappers wearing jerseys from sports like football, baseball, or basketball, that I get. But hockey, a sport popularized by white Canadians? I'm setting out to document all the videos which feature hiphop artists wearing hockey jerseys. Know of any others? Send them my way, and include a YouTube link if you can.

Thanks to DELINQ who pointed out many of these videos, especially the Almighty RSO: “These first two are from the first group that started the fad, IMO. RSO was a Boston-based group that adopted the Bruins’ logo as their own, and pretty much wore only Bruins apparel, including the jerseys.”
