If Journey's not your thing -- or if you've just heard Askon Davaran's now-ubiquitous "Don't Stop Believing" anthem for the S.F. Giants enough times -- a pack of SFC rappers including San Quinn, Big Rich, CellskiDaVinci, and Roach Gigz have you covered with "Black & Orange," a swooping lyrical ode to the team that just brought home the biggest trophy in baseball. (Behind the track -- which you can download here -- are also KMEL's DJ Amen and DJ Prince Aries.)

On Monday, the whole crew went down to AT&T Park and filmed a video for what will likely be the preeminent hip-hop telling of this year's World Series-winning season. (Kanye West aside, of course.) The result is bold, braggalicious, and makes us fair-weather fans look like the bandwagon-riders we are. Highlights: A Harley-Davidson gas tank in Halloween colors, and Roach Gigz' impressively ornate Giants' tattoo, along with plenty of solid hometown rhymes. Watch "Black & Orange" after the jump.

Here it is, the video for "Black & Orange":

  • 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.'"
