Hip-Hop Reacts to Tiger Woods Winning Masters Tournament
Tiger Woods finally got the monkey off his back. On Sunday (April 14), the golf legend won the Masters tournament in Augusta, Ga. for the first time since 2005, earning his fifth victory at the prestigious event, 15th major tournament win overall and an immeasurable amount of confidence following a decade-long drought without a major W.
Rocking his signature red shirt on the final day of the event, Woods sank a short putt on the 18th hole to go -13. He pumped his arms in excitement and clear relief. While golf isn't exactly hip-hop's sport, the rap world generally loves a great comeback story. A number of rappers have chimed in on social media to big up T. Woods' big victory.
Hilariously, Tyga was one of the first hip-hop artists to shout out Tiger on Twitter posting, "Tiger!!!"
Action Bronson celebrated the win by tweeting out one of his lines name-dropping the golfer from his 2018 track "White Bronco." "MY NEW SHIT SWING LIKE TIGER AT THE MASTERS!!!!!!!!!" he posted.
Hip-hop mogul Irv Gotti posted about the win being special for him and his pops. "Posting this for my dad," he captioned an announcement about the win on Instagram. "Poppi loves Tiger. And got so much enjoyment out of Tiger winning the Masters Again. So I wanna say Congrats and Thank You to Tiger. For bringing my dad so much enjoyment today. @tigerwoods AND YOU CAN NEVER COUNT OUT A CHAMPION."
