LSU's Flau'jae Johnson reveals her list of top 5 rapper ft. Drake

LSU guard Flau'jae Johnson is on a promotion run in the lead-up to her debut EP "Best of Both Worlds." The rapper sat down for an interview on Ian Johnson's Captain Jack Podcast, where she was asked about her top five rappers of all time.

"This list changes constantly. I gotta go J Cole, Rakim. I'm gonna go with Tupac, Jay Z and Drake. I love old school. I barely listen to the new stuff," Johnson said. (25:50)

Flau'jae Johnson was also asked about her top five scorers and she said (1:42):

"Kyrie, I'm gonna go Arike, LeBron, Kobe, of course. Let's go Candace Parker, too. LeBron's my favorite player, so I'm biased. And Kyrie Irving is like a painter with the rock."

Johnson wrapped her sophomore year at LSU averaging 14.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists, shooting 50.4% from the floor. She has also been working on her music simultaneously, as she released AMF during March Madness, in collaboration with NLE Choppa.

Flau'jae Johnson reveals her reasons for choosing LSU for college

Despite receiving offers from most major programs, Flau'jae Johnson faced trouble as most schools wanted her to pick basketball over music.

"When I was getting recruited, a lot of teams kept asking me, ‘Which one do you wanna do?’ And I’d be like, ‘I wanna do both,’" she said (via Yahoo Sports). "And they wouldn’t understand me so I was like, I’ll just do music (and quit basketball).
"I was already making money, already buzzing. But then I found a place (LSU) that really understood my vision and just allowed me to be myself while playing the sport I love."

Flau'jae Johnson has been playing her best basketball with the Tigers. However, she added that she does not plan on having a long pro career after college.

"Oh, I am not going to be in my 30s still playing in the league," she said. "No, I’ve been playing since I was 3. I’m gonna get a couple years in the league (WNBA), hopefully buy a team and then go sit on an island in Cancun."
"OK, I’m going to buy a team, then be in the city of Cancun chilling. But I want an island, too," she corrected.

For now, Johnson will focus on her junior season as she and LSU navigate their post-Angel Reese era. The guard is expected to take a bigger role in the team and lead them.
