Each playoff season, more hip-hop artists take to YouTube to lend their support to the Patriots, some seriously, others in a more light-hearted manner. Local legend Akrobatic even dropped a “Deflategate freestyle’’ this past summer.
Today, it appears we have our first contender for the 2016 playoff push – a pretty serious track from two local rappers.
“It’s better when the pressure is on us, with our backs against the wall, what we do gets stronger,’’ Randy Lo raps on “Champion (Patriots Anthem),’’ a new song that the Boston artist co-wrote with Easton’s Brandon Cappiello, who performs under the name Brandon Capp.
The video, which was shot at Gillette Stadium, was just released today as the Patriots look ahead to a TBD divisional round matchup.
“The song embodies, ultimately, that being a champion is being a Patriot,’’ Cappiello told The Enterprise.
The duo is hoping that this song will be an anthem for Patriots Nation, and that they might be able to perform it at a Championship parade (knock on wood). Capiello told The Enterprise that he hopes the song will leave a legacy.
“It’s something that won’t just pump you up for the playoffs, the AFC championship or the Super Bowl, but for years to come this could be a special song for all of New England to enjoy.’’
