If you catch Kelly Oubre before a game, you can assume the 22-year-old wing for the Wizards is listening to some "rager" music.

A self-described rager himself, Oubre revealed what music he and key members of the squad listen to before games.

"I listen to what's hot and what's also going to let me rage," Oubre started. "I gotta get some upbeat, uptempo type of music." 

Oubre stays up on all the current music, saying he's "pretty big on the new releases." As far as albums go, Travis Scott's "Astroworld" is Oubre's album of the year so far. 

So, what about the rest of the team?

Take a step inside the Wizards' locker room and you might hear artists from all walks of rap. From Travis Scott to Lil Uzi Vert. Drake, Lil Wayne or French Montana. And each player has his own preference.

"John likes trap. I like the rage," Oubre revealed. "Brad likes more of the lyrical. Keef likes the Philly. Otto is a lyricist."

After posting career highs of 11.8 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in 2017-18, Oubre has a real chance to make a significant leap this coming season, a contract year for the fourth-year forward.
