If there is any glaring omission from the 2011-2012 Syracuse Orange basketball season, it's the stunning lack of a hip-hop theme song.
2010 had Shut It Down. 2011 had Unfinished Business. At the very least we assumed 2012 would have Unfinished Business Remix (f. Timbaland). But no...nothing. When left, he took his rap anthems with him (in the case of Unfinished Business, that's fine).
Marshall Street Records would like to change that. The student-run record label has launched a contest to find the best MC Syracuse University has to offer and record their tribute to SU's basketball team.
"But, yo dawg, I don't got no fresh beats."
Don't worry, son, fresh biz-neats have been provided. They've posted a track for this song on YouTube. It's up to you to drop the illest lyrics ya'll can mizz-uster.
An open recording session will be held in hall of languages this Sunday for any lyrical assassins wantin' to drop some skrilla (I don't think that's the correct usage of skrilla). According to the record label, the winning track will be submitted to a music supervisor at ESPN, so there's that.
My submission after the jump.
