We keep seeing swimmer Michael Phelps with his earphones from his IPOD on before every race.  Wonder what he’s listening to?

Yahoo Sports tells us:

Phelps listens to hip-hop music on his ipod. He says it helps motivate him before a race.

While his pre-race tracklist varies, Phelps has said that “I’m Me” by Lil’ Wayne has been on his playlist in Beijing. The track, off Weezy’s EP “The Leak” features the line:

Yes I am the best/and no I ain’t positive I’m definite/I know the game like I’m reffing it

Other artists that populate Phelps’ iPod include: Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, Eminem and Outkast.  Occasionally, he’ll throw some techno into the mix, but usually keeps things rap-centric. Phelps doesn’t speak much about the specific songs he’s listening to, but he did tell NBC in 2004 that Eminem’s “‘Til I Collapse” was on his most-played list at Athens. In 2005, he created a playlist for the website Rhapsody that included the songs “Roses” by Outkast, “Burn” by Usher, “Overnight Celebrity” by Twista and  “Smile” by G-Unit.

Not exactly my playlist but what works for him……..
