Default Rappers and their tennis 'allegiances'

It seems that we are beginning to see more and more rap/hip hop artists at the tennis in the past couple of years. So far it seems:

Both Kanye West and P Diddy have been spotted in Djokovic's player box in Rome and New York respectively. Diddy seemed pretty enthusiastic during the SF, regardless of whether or not he actually knew what was going on. Don't actually know whether these guys are 'fans' though.

Jay-Z is a Nadal fan - seen at 2010 RG final, 2011 US Open final and Nadal vs Del Potro at Wimbledon this year, so fairly safe to assume.

Lil Wayne is also a Nadal fan. From a blog in ESPN magazine from 2008 (I think):
Quote:
Besides the Packers, my favorite teams are the Red Sox, the Lakers and the Boston Bruins. I also love tennis. I had a lot of people over to my place to watch the Wimbledon final this year, and we went crazy. I love Federer but Nadal is my favorite. He's the man. I love his motivation and his heart is big. He leaves it on the court.
Snoop Dogg is/was a Lendl fan:
Quote:
During an interview, rapper Snoop Dogg was asked which sport people would be surprised to know he liked.
He replied: "Tennis. I used to like Ivan Lendl. He was sharp. An old schooler. Make it happen and roll out. Now I like Venus and Serena, but Ivan was the truth."
Not entirely sure about Federer but have heard rumours that Tupac is releasing a new album next year with a song dedicated to him.

Oh, and Vanilla Ice is deffo a Murray fan.

Anyone aware of any others?

Props to Snoop Dog for picking lendl, at least he isn't a bandwagoner.

Kanye was also there in Paris during a Djokovic match, I think he is a fan too.

I thought I'd seen Diddy in Novak's box! But, thought, 'no way'. Wow, and he was very animated cheering for Djok. Lol

Some of those rappers are there because it's the place to be and probably know nothing about the scoring system. Nonetheless it's great to see the rappers in the "house".

Li'l Wayne wrote a letter from jail (lol) to cheer on Rafa before the '10 Wimbledon final, and he also mentions him in one of his songs. He's a remarkably well-spoken guy, in sharp contrast to his hideous appearance (not that ugly people can't be smart, but...)

So I guess Roger is too bland for the rappers, nobody supports him.
