Normally when rappers throw on the jersey of a local player for one of their concerts, it’s that of a superstar. Think LeBron James in Miami or Cleveland, or Stephen Curry in the Bay Area.

Fisher was recently hired as Spectrum Sportsnet as an analyst for around 20 games this season, and there is probably not a more perfect way to welcome him back to L.A., and the man himself agrees:
