This may be the most relatable Prince has ever been.

Long before Prince became a music legend, he was just a teen from Minnesota trying to make the starting lineup on his high school basketball team.

Minneapolis’ Star Tribune reporter Libor Jany dug deep into the paper’s archives, and unearthed these priceless clips on the musician’s athletic past. It even includes a photo of Prince in his Bryant Junior High School team uniform.

As Bleacher Report pointed out out, Jany’s “Chappelle” tweet refers to a NSFW Chapelle Showskit in which actor Charlie Murphy describes losing a casual basketball game to Prince and his crew. Suddenly, his story doesn’t seem so far-fetched.
