Top Ten 49ers-Related Rap Songs to Bump Before the Next Game
The past two years have seen an influx of rap songs dedicated to the San Francisco 49ers, a phenomenon that seems to grow along with the city's team pride. The tracks consist of a combination of remixes of popular songs and entirely original compositions, with most pointing out player names and little details that a fair-weather fan might not know.
Heat shows 49er pride in the new "Die-Hard" video.
Even if you don't actually watch football, these 10 tunes should help you get into the spirit of the game before the Niners kill the Atlanta Falcons on Jan. 20 and get one step closer to the Super Bowl.
10. Jiggsaw featuring San Quinn, Bandaide, Cellski, Nova Cain, Traxamillion, "Official 2010 49er Anthem"
"Welcome to the 'Stick, you can call it the jungle!" With rhymes from O.G.s and a sinister, thumping beat, this is quite probably the most mobbin' song ever made for a sports team.
9. Bobo & Really Real, "Roll Call"
Produced by local vet E-A-Ski, this one has a stadium-catchy hook and a plea to "bring the '80s back!"
8. LoveRance, "Up (49ers Remix)"
The SF rapper curiously took his local hit about gettin' some and flipped it into a sports song, turning the hook of "I beat the pussy up" into "Niner fans stand up."
7. S.C.O (Solidarity Co Op), "Faithfully"
Local sports fans have already been trained by Ashkon to embrace Journey sports reworks with his Giants-ified remix of "Don't Stop Believin'", so this footballish take on the band's "Faithfully" by Equipto, Baldhead Rick, Shag Nasty, Curk Sak, Ike Plump, and Sellassie makes sense.
6. Ashkon, "Niners in Paris"
He didn't want to be left out of football season, apparently, so Ashkon (the East Bay singer known for his Giants songs) rewired Kanye and Jay-Z's "Niggas in Paris" for the home team.
