As written by Steve 'Flash' Juon, and voted on by THE PEOPLE who read!

This week's WSIB was inspired by March Madness, that wonderful time of year with a gigantic bracket of 64 teams (or in more recent years 64 + a "First Four" of play-in teams) playing college basketball at the highest levels. For those with basketball dreams but lame jump shots like me, it's a vicarious thrill to watch Jordan Poole hit an incredibly long three with time expiring to save his team from the "lose one and you're done" elimination format. As I watched this and other miraculous victories over the weekend, I was reminded of a now obscure hip-hop track about balling wit'cha sneaks on that had a sweet "Wild Flower" sample by the group Creative Source. You can hear the original track in the player below.

The b-ball song that I like may not be the one that you like though - it's just one of several different songs that flip it up, switch it up, and smack it around to get that hip-hop sound. Check out these "Wild Flower" contenders and then scroll down to pick which one you like better!

1.) Akrobatik f/ Chuck D - "Kindred"

2.) Saigon f/ Dead Prez - "Nobody Cares"

3.) Wu All-Stars - "Soul in the Hole"

Here's your chance to vote! Pick one of the three on Twitter. Only one can advance.
We'll have the results for you next week right here on WSIB!
