With the Giant’s definitely so close to the World Series, we here in the bay are very excited– even myself an un-baseball fan am feeling the excitement. Baseball is not a sport often discussed in the rap game. It’s true that there are exceptions, especially when it comes to the New York Yankees, but most other MLB teams tend to be overlooked by emcees in favor of football and basketball references. KMEL‘s DJ Amen and Distortion 2 Static‘s ownPrince Aries are out to reconcile this issue with “Black & Orange,” a tribute to the San Francisco Giants, their favorite ball club. They’ve enlisted the help of a few notable locals with the track as well, including San Quinn, Big Rich, Cellski, DaVinci and Roach Gigz.
The song is a remix of Wiz Kahifa‘s new single “Black & Yellow” and its four minutes gives each artist the chance to show off their skills and rep their home town and home team. San Quinn, Big Rich and Cellski are all long-established figures in the Bay Area scene and to see them rap alongside newer up-and-comers accurately portrays San Francisco to be the hip-hop hotbed that it is. Such a song could not come at a more appropriate time, as the Giants are one win away from moving on to this year’s World Series. As if San Francisco wasn’t already fired up, this provides fans with the anthem to root their team.

I love Chris Brown in an un-groupie way, and honestly after all that stuff he went through, I’m glad to see him coming out with new stuff and people like MTV actually putting it up.
