I'm like the '95 Penny, you like Penny '04
Cole, like many other rappers, likes dropping references to famous basketball players in his songs. Here, he compares himself to Penny Hardaway, when he was in his best form, playing for The Orlando Magic (1993-1995). Penny’s also his favorite player (as he says in the next line).
The 1994–1995 NBA season saw Penny take his game to another level. The Magic won a franchise record 57 games, while Penny averaged 20.9 points, 7.2 assists, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.7 steals per game.
In the 2004-05 season, in 76 total games during the season, he averaged 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.3 assists. In the playoffs the Knicks lost in the first round to the New Jersey Nets.
