While Australian rapping sensation Iggy Azalea has been filming her Kill Bill-inspired Black Widow video with Rita Ora and actor Michael Madsen, across town, her boyfriend just signed a four-year $21.5 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers. Nick Young has been with the Lakers for just a single Kobe Bryant-less season, but he put his mark on an otherwise dismal year for the purple and gold, converting six 4-point plays (a Lakers franchise record) while averaging 17.9 points per game.
What do Iggy Azalea and Nick Young have in common–other than being young, talented and rich in Los Angeles? Well, Young knows the rap scene; he’s the cousin of hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar. And he knows what it’s like in front of a rolling camera, too. Young was the subject of a biopic called Second Chance Season, which revealed the challenges of a 17-year-old Young on and off the court.
