Tonight marks the Golden State Warriors’ first NBA finals game away from home, as reigning MVP Stephen Curry and team hope to extend their 2-0 lead over LeBron James‘ Cavaliers in Cleveland.

But if DJ D Sharp is on hand, they’ll be more than ready for Game 3. At home, the team’s official DJ is tasked with getting the players pumped up before every game – and he knows just how to do it.

“I provide a heavy dose of Future and Drake during warm-ups for the players,” he said.

Curry, the team’s star guard, is a rap fan, while power forward Draymond Green rejects all things house.

“Steph once came up to the DJ booth to see what Lupe Fiasco song I was playing,” he said. “I make sure not to play house music when Draymond is on the floor, I don’t think he likes it.”

The team’s playlist is available via Tidal – see below – and Sharp said he keeps an ear out for what’s new.

“I try to keep the warm-up playlist as current as possible,” he said.

Whatever he s doing. It seems to be working!

Game 3 of the NBA finals begin tonight at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
