If there’s any footballer who embodies the catchphrase culture of today’s youth, the #SWAG-gering, #YOLO-ers who inevitably and invariably hashtag and instagram everything in sight and forget about it as soon as it’s left their smartphone, it’s Mario Balotelli. He’s become less an actual person and more of a cultural meme. BaLOLtelli, they tweet. And the voice of this generation? Possibly rapper Drake, known as “Wheelchair Jimmy” to his compatriots. The former child actor is one of the biggest names in popular music right now, and it only makes sense that he’d name-check his friend (they had a curry in Manchester) Mario when he remixed Aaliyah’s “Enough Said.”
