Steph Curry and his Golden State Warriors may be basketball's reigning champs, but there was once a time when Dennis Rodman was the mega star running up and down the court! With the help of alternative hip hop duo, Mansionz, Dennis Rodman is back in the game! The duo consists of multi-platinum, singer-songwriter/producer, Mike Posner, and underground alternative, R&B artist/producer, Blackbear, who are both industry known for their vocals and production.
This month, ESPN Music had the chance to catch up with Mansionz to hear about their collaboration with Dennis Rodman. Prior to release, they gave us a sneak peek of their new music video “Dennis Rodman” feat. Dennis Rodman and we had to find out more!
Mike and Blackbear both came up with the idea to work with Rodman since they both share the same free spiritedness like Dennis Rodman. Earlier this year, their free spiritedness on the Red Carpet at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards caught everyone’s attention with their green hair and measurable doses of irreverent chaos. Mike says he is "a big fan of Dennis Rodman" and even joked that all his computer passwords are DennisRodmanandKing91919191. Blackbear helped come up with the video concept with inspiration from NBA2K and loves how the video came out, saying "Imagine playing against Dennis Rodman?!" Although they don’t play basketball often as it looked in the music video, they do enjoy table tennis, water polo, javelin and ultimate frisbee.
In the near future, they plan to shoot a video for their song “Wicked” which features rapper, G-Eazy. The duo also plans on touring to promote their self-titled album next summer in Germany. Somewhere in between their busy schedule, they said they "would love to come to Bristol and host SportsCenter". We'd love that too! In the meantime, check out the "Dennis Rodman" Music Video HERE.
Their self-titled album, Mansionz, is available now on iTunes.
