The Bama Championship Rap is Not a Good Look
Every year prior big games, we see groups of fans put together rap video parodies about just how great their teams are and how much they are going to overwhelm their opponents when it matters most.
With the BCS National Championship game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish right around the corner, you had to figure something would be forthcoming from Roll Tide Nation sooner than later.
If so, you were right.
The “Bama Championship Rap” from Nick Fox and his partner Alyssa from 97.5 WABD Radio in Mobile, Alabama makes an attempt at funny ha-ha but just comes off goofy as hell.
See for yourself:
Rule numero uno of rap parodies, like this one, is that if you’re going to pull one off semi-successfully it’s not a bad idea to have a little street cred, and at least sound the part, even if you can’t look it. Nick and Alyssa sound more like a few seventh-grade girls or a Mother’s Day Out group trying to impress their kids with their hipness instead of Kendrick Lamar– but I digress.
I know, I know, it’s all in good fun and I shouldn’t expect them to have the production level of Kanye West at Madison Square Garden. Yeah, fair enough.
A little more grit might make me convinced the Tide are to be feared, however. For now, they just seem plain vanilla.
Good job, good effort?
