While accumulating a resume that includes him being a 12-time All-Star and three-time NBA Champion — Dwyane Wade has heard his name mentioned in a number of songs.

Genius sat down with the Chicago Bulls star guard to get his feedback on some of the dopest shoutouts he’s received, including Jay-Z’s 2009 hit “Empire State of Mind,” — .Kanye West’s track “The Glory” off “Graduation” — and several others.
