Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Tamba Hali joined the show to talk about his upbringing, the Chiefs’ 9-0 start and his rap career. Here are some of Hali’s takes:

On first watching football when he got to America:  I didn’t understand the game. Seems like everybody was running into each other. My first thought was why don’t they just run around them.

On fear growing up around war in Liberia: “I worried. The worry was different. If you grew up in it, that’s what it seemed like was happening. War was going on. People were dying. You were worried. In the same sense, you knew people were going to die. You just hoped it wasn’t people you knew and people who were close to you.”

On comparing football and war: “I can’t make the comparison. I understand when we go out to play it’s a type of war. A battle. You have strong men who are knocking bones together. We’re not trying to hurt each other. We’re trying to find out a way to make the play.”

On Richie Incognito:   “It doesn’t sound like hazing. What’s happening with Martin is he’s being harassed outside of work in a manner that if it was in another non-football organization that would be harassment.”

On people disrespecting the Chiefs: “Whatever people choose to do, that’s up to them. We’re just focused on what we’re doing. If people want to support us, we welcome that. If people don’t want to support ? us that’s fine. Hopefully we’ll get some sort of respect soon.”

On Andy Reid: Coach is a natural born leader. He lets us take control as well and let our personalities show while we play the game. From Day 1 we set our goals. The goal wasn’t to rebuild the team. We knew we had talent. With is leadership and the organization bringing in TK veteran coaches. We have nothing to lose by listening to these guys.

On music: “I took it more seriously in college. When I got ot the League I understood my profession was playing football. It was a way I could express myself.”

On his influences: I admire Jay-Z, … I grew up on Jay-Z, Biggie, Tupac.
