For any fighting-related metaphors or similes, we’d like to suggest switching out Mike Tyson or Floyd Mayweather for a more exciting athlete like the dominant Ronda Rousey.

“About to make ya catch an L faster than a hook from Rousey”

8. Young Anakin Skywalker

Yung Lean, his cloud-rap crew, and others influenced by them could tap into some serious sad boy potential with references to the pouting character straight from their favorite period of history. Shout out 2002.

Anthony Fantano has assisted in curating online hip-hop fans’ music taste for years, so it’s only right he receive a shout-out from an artist who thrives in internet hip-hop circles.

If there’s one athlete that needs to be referenced at a high rate in the next six months, it’s OBJ. The second year wide receiver is the pinnacle of flashy athletics at their finest.
