Now there's a Giant's Hip-Hop Anthem: DJ Amen and Prince Aries' 'Black & Orange'

Posted By on Wed, Oct 20, 2010 at 8:07 AM

The competition for the banner song of this so-far-so-good Giants season is getting fierce, folks. Ashkon Davaran's "Don't Stop Believing" take-off may have won the official title, and Death Cab's Ben Gibbard given yesterday's national anthem honors (see above), but we've got another grand-slammin' potential anthem for you, this one of the hip-hop variety, recorded and given away free by locals DJ Amen, Prince Aries, San Quinn, Davinci, Roach Gigz, Big Rich, and Cellski. Big beats and big praise for the hometown boys, after the jump.

The tune's called "Black & Orange," and rides a thumping, titantic beat while the various MCs step in and testify to the Giants' awesomeness and give shout-outs to various members: Lincecum, Posey, Bochy, etc. Lyrics like "World Series destination" have we wincing out of fear of possible jinxing, but, hell, what would a rap song be without a little boasting? 

Download the tune for free here and leave your thoughts in the comments.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
