It's hard to play golf.
00:03
It looks easy on TV, like,
00:04
Oh, they just swinging
00:05
and hitting that little ball in the hole.
00:07
I can do that.
00:07
It's not that easy, man.
00:09
That's why the best of the best make it to this stage.
00:13
The masters was always, you know,
00:16
a sporting event that you watched
00:18
even if you didn't like golf.
00:20
But I know the prestigiousness of being here,
00:22
so I respect it and I understand what it means to be here.
00:25
And hopefully I can influence them
00:27
to invite more people like myself,
00:29
who are cool, and who are hip hop,
00:32
and who are about some other things
00:33
and bring some flavor to the masters.
00:35
And not just let it be about
00:36
(claps softly)
00:38
But be about
00:39
(yells excitedly) Hello
00:43
Man, Tiger Woods was spectacular on the course.
00:45
Man, he was special.
00:47
I remember that red shirt he had on.
00:48
And doing that move.
00:50
And just bringing enthusiasm to golf.
00:52
Like, not that they never had it.
00:54
But it just wasn't appreciated so much.
00:57
You know when they would win it all,
00:59
they would
01:01
go grab their kids.
01:03
When Tiger won he went
01:04
I won this motherfucker. (reporters laugh)
01:07
You know what I'm saying, like, that made me feel good.
01:11
(smooth electronic music)
01:14
Is Rory in it?
01:15
[Reporters] Mm-hmm
01:17
I like Rory.
01:18
He didn't even know I was a fan of his, but I like him.
01:22
I think I'm gonna go,
01:23
what about my man that be getting his drink on?
01:25
[Reporter] John Daley.
01:27
Yes, Daley.
01:29
(crowd laughs) Damn.
01:31
I love Daley man.
01:35
I feel like me being here today is bridging the gap
01:37
and showing that golf could be cool.
01:39
We was riding, playing some good music,
01:41
and having a good time.
01:42
That made the day interesting.
01:43
It made it fun.
01:44
Because when you think of golf,
01:46
you think of it as quiet and concentration.
01:49
Shh. He's on the par three and he's about to hit the ball.
01:53
Well, when we was on, you understand me,
01:54
turn it up, hello, get it in, you know what I mean.
01:58
Golf needs it because it's missing,
02:02
it's the last piece of the puzzle.
02:04
Look at everybody else.
02:05
Even hockey,
02:06
hockey had me come DJ the all-star game this year.
02:07
They brought entertainers of all walks of life.
02:10
The same when you look at the baseball World Series.
02:12
There's somebody that loves this team that's a movie star.
02:15
Go to the NBA Finals, there's superstars on the floor.
02:19
You come to golf, the only superstars on the green.
