FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, Chance The Rapper. What do these names have in common? They’re artists who’ve inspired people all over the world -- and they’re all on linebacker Darron Lee’s pregame playlist.
The national stage of Monday Night Football is one where players love to get fired up.
“Something that puts me in a good mood, something upbeat,” is what Lee described as his preferred musical taste when lacing up his cleats.
The lone win for the Jets this season came in an evening game and if Lee balls out tonight you’ll know the part of the soundtrack behind his every move:
JAY-Z- “U DON’T KNOW”
The Brooklyn native has been rapping for over 20 years so it’s no surprise that he has a few bangers in his catalogue.
MYSTIKAL- “THE MAN RIGHT CHEA”
Known for his exuberant voice and unique delivery, Mystikal can get someone amped by reading a bedtime story.
CHIEF KEEF- “I DON’T LIKE”
“The original one, not the Kanye one,” Lee emphasized.
