The Crossover is a new interview series on DUNK360, hosted by Maria Myraine. In basketball, the term “crossover” refers to a maneuver in which the player switches the ball rapidly from one hand to the other – to make a change in direction. On DUNK360, The Crossover explores both sides of a (hypothetical) ball. Examining sports and music, Maria Myraine sits down with music artists to discuss their music as well as their commentary on sports. And on the flipside, she will also sit down with athletes to get their expertise on sports, and their opinions on music.
For the first episode, DUNK360 got an exclusive with legendary Dancehall artist, Mr. Vegas. Maria Myraine opens with a question about Vegas’ newest single – a his dancehall interpretation of the latest dance craze, the “dab.” Their conversation then switches between music and sports as Mr. Vegas shares insight on “watered down dancehall music,” Lebron James, old beef with Pitbull, Carmelo Anthony, new music, The Spurs and more.
