A Sacramento-based rapper is showing some more love for his city — sort of.
As the NBA draft approaches, Hobo Johnson has made a short song about the Kings. In the YouTube video, which is only 80 seconds long, Johnson's "Anthem" about the team stresses one point: "We're not that bad."
Editor's note: Song contains explicit lyrics.

The video, which was posted Tuesday on YouTube, had more than 70,000 views as of 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. In it, he points out some past draft mistakes the Kings have made, references the 2002 Western Conference finals and, like other fans, just wants to see the team become a winner again.
"I just really hope that we get better soon / getting blown out by the Hawks makes me really want to move," Johnson says.
The Kings have some improving to do. They have the No. 2 pick in Thursday's draft and are currently on the NBA's longest postseason drought at 12 years.
Johnson had a previous video go viral in an attempt to win a national contest. Could this be the next one?
