Golden State Warriors execs to players: Stop singing cocaine song

Golden State Warriors players told by team executives to stop singing cocaine reference rap song after wins

The Golden State Warriors like to sing after a victory and with the best record in the league (18-2),  there has been plenty of singing.

Warriors center Marreese Speights posts videos of the team celebrating a win on his Instagram page.

But their favorite anthem has hit a snag.

The players were told by team management they may no longer post videos of themselves celebrating after a win by all singing along to O.T. Genasis' "CoCo," a team source confirmed.

The song is a direct reference to cocaine. If there was any question about the lyrics – “I got it for the low low. I'm in love with the coco” --  the music video makes it quite clear the song is about the drug.

“We wish we could do the coco thing but they said we can't nomore sorry!!! #dubnation!!!,” Speights tweeted.

Still, the team has found a way around the ruling – kind of.

Stephen Curry posted a picture to his Instagram Monday night of teammates holding the cereal Cocoa Krispies after their 102–86 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

“Good win fellas! Ready to get Back to the Bay! #ImInLove,” Curry said in the caption of the picture.
