Hip-Hop producer Jazze Pha and executive Kenny Burns have teamed with TNT Networks to remake the song "Basketball Jones," originally recorded by comedians Cheech & Chong. Basketball Jones, which is a spoof of Brighter Side of Darkness’ song "Love Jones," was originally released in 1975.

The song, which was produced in less than two hours, features vocals by Jazze Pha with vocals by from singer Esther Dean and a spoken word rap by Burns. "We wanted to do something fun and serious at the same time," Jazze Pha said. "Just like any sport, you gotta have a moment to breathe and regroup in between time, and Basketball Jones is that refreshment."

According to Jazze Pha, who has worked with artists like Chris Brown, Usher, Ciara, Mary J. Blige and others, the single will be introduced during NBA’s All-Star weekend in New Orleans.

The new track will also be featured in Tyler Perry’s show House of Payne.
