As you all may know, Allen Iverson once recorded a rap album called Misunderstood. NBA Commissioner David Stern tried to get the lyrics changed because of the explicit lyrics, which eventually led AI to dropping the release all together.
But now, thanks to the Internet, you can hear the album he was working on! Misunderstood, a ten-song album that features A.I. is available on iTunes. and there’s a link there to purchase it for the low price of $2.99.
Basketball great Allen Iverson said on his Twitter account that he definitely will return to his Camp Crossover, which will be held July 6-9 at the Boo Williams Sportsplex in Hampton.

From 5-6:30 p.m. that day, dads and father figures in the campers’ lives are encouraged to come to a special fatherhood forum.

Allen Iverson may be taking a break from basketball, but he’s remaining active on the rap scene. Iverson is backing a rapper from his hometown of Newport News, Virginia named Ty Gracie. Ty Gracie has been rapping for over 10 years and has collaborated in the past with Iverson, Cru Thik and Ellis Park, LLC. The mixtape was dropped to coincide with the release of the documentary No Cross Over: The Trial of Allen Iverson. Gracie, who grew up in “Bad Newz,” said the documentary was an accurate reflection of the area. “People from Bad Newz have a different story to tell,” Gracie said. Gracie has worked a number of artists over the years, including Fat Joe, Snoop, Young Jeezy, Jadakiss, Jazze Pha, Nicole Ray and others.
