If you've never seen Nardwuar interviews before, you should probably stop reading SB Nation and spend the rest of the day on YouTube immersing yourself in the awkward glory of his goofy catalog. You could start with his interviews of Nas, Jay-Z, Odd Future, Pharrell, or... Anyone, really. This GQ article is a nice primer, too.
Basically, Nardwuar is theof interviewers, and Metta World Peace is the Nardwuar of basketball players. And at long last, they have collided. Video below:
Topics include Canada ("shouts out to Hornby Island"), this LEGENDARY rap album, sneaking into the shower with Kobe, Shaq's rap career ("Fu Schnickens was dope"), Fast Break, women ("every woman is special"), and roaches ("That's my peoples... I can't eat my peoples").
By Nardwuar's standards the interview's actually pretty tame, but it happened, and that's what's important. And if you watch, make sure you stick around until the end, where Nardwuar turns into a mime and Artest doesn't know what to do so he just starts freestyling. That last sentence is why the internet just the best sometimes.
