The Pelicans started their season in New York against the Nets. And Zion Williamson received a present from one of New York's most famous rappers. Rapper Fat Joe who made "Make It. Rain" and "Lean Back" gifted the young Pelican a chain that represents his record label.

Williamson himself is a huge rap fan. Specifically, rap from Fat Joe's era. Williamson credits Ready To Die by Biggie Smalls helping him through his darkest periods in life. So the fact that a contemporary of Biggie who himself is a great rapper had to mean a lot to Williamson.
