Video: Champion boxer Andre Ward names all Christian rappers for his top five hip-hop artists on Sway

Champion boxer Andre Ward listed five Christian hip-hop artists when Sway Calloway asked him who his favorite rappers were on his radio show. (Fast forward to 2:56 to hear Ward talk about his top five rappers).

Ward, who won a gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics, named Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Transparent, KB and Tedashii.

Calloway proceeded to ask Ward if he had heard of Christian hip-hop pioneer T-Bone, who actually introduced Calloway to Lecrae’s music.

For fans who have no knowledge of boxing and think Ward looks familiar, he made a cameo appearance in KB’s music video for “100” last year.
