Oh Look, Another College Rap Song

By: 01.13.11  •  11 Comments

Some Indiana University students recently produced an anything-but-modest rap song to promote school spirit for the current NCAA basketball season, and I’ll give it an A for effort, but other than that… hooray, more white kids rapping. Call me a hater or whathaveyou, but I think we’ve about exhausted the college rap song genre. It’s just getting old, but college sports reggaeton… that’s the future!

Look, I’m not trying to come off as the crotchety old white man here, but if I hear one more college team remix of Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow”, I’m going to throw out my autographed Snow poster and start listening to country music. Seriously, did you hear Tom Hanks’ son’s version for Northwestern? It’s not fun anymore, if it ever was at all. And I’m not trying to pick on Indiana here – congrats, you have an awesome history – but my school has a rap song, too, so I’ve suffered enough.

Video after the jump…

More than anything, I’d like to see our college students use a little more honesty in their rap songs. Take this lyric, for instance:

“This is how we ball, we got banners on the wall.”

Oh look at that, they show the banners – 1940, 1953, 1976, 1981, 1987… wait, why did they stop at 1987? What happened to the other banners, Big 10 daddies? How about we change the following lyrics to:

We got them before the current student body was born, so they’re looking pretty worn.
We’re trying to add some mo’, but rebuilding has been slow.
Since ‘08 we been on probation, so maybe next year we’ll rule the nation.

You know, something like that.
