I was having a bit of fun on Twitter the other day (clearly I don't get out much at the moment!) after Team PokerStars: Online Pro Shane 'Shaniac' Schleger came up with a 'hashtag' whereby you had to infuse poker related things into hip-hop artists and songs. Seeing as hip-hop and poker are two of my favourite things, I had to have a whirl.

Here's my top twelve of what myself and everyone else who got involved came up with. Obviously I'm heavily biased towards my own ideas :)

  1. De La Soul Read  (by @epitomised)
  2. Vanilla ICM (by @Barry_Carter)
  3. Nitty by Nature (by @ShortyDawg)
  4. Big Slick Rick (by @ReyzorxXx)
  5. Lisa "In Your Eye" Lopes (by @epitomised)
  6. Lloyd Time-Banks (by @epitomised)
  7. Busto Rhymes (by @Daleroxxu)
  8. Def Jam the pot (by @DianaPricePhoto)
  9. Scarface-cards (by @ShaneSchleger)
  10. Rakewon (by @Daleroxxu)
  11. "Jesus Walks"  (by @FabolousHK)
  12. Three Bet Mafia (by @epitomised)

If you have any good ones, tweet them with the hashtag #HipHopPoker, or if you don't have twitter leave a comment and I'll tweet any decent ones :)

I'm 20k behind dude if actually read my stats :), had a rough few days and was finishing sessions early as I was getting brutalized and steaming.

I'm not easily impressed with things and I found your top 10 list extremely witty.
