The kinda girl I describe her
Like Michael Jordan when he's froze in a pose
Of a jumpman

from Big Boi (Ft. Khujo & T.I.) – Tangerine Lyrics on Rap Genius


Michael Jordan is one of, if not the greatest basketball player of all time, and his “jumpman” pose is arguably his high point — both in terms of actual height as well as from a career perspective, as that pose lended itself to the logo that spawned his massive Jordan brand empire. By comparing this girl to MJ in his jumpman pose, Big Boi is essentially saying that this girl is in her prime and there’s no one better than her.
