Well, this didn't make it to our Fox-fueled TV screens yesterday: Rap star/walking tattoo warning Lil Wayne was on hand at AT&T Park to sing -- we use that term loosely -- "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." Yes, and with enthusiasm! Which raises several questions:

1. Lil Wayne is a Giants fan? (He's decked out in the team gear in this video we've got for you.)

2. Lil Wayne can sing? (Hint: No AutoTune appeared to be on hand at AT&T Park yesterday.)

3. Whom can we expect to surprise us at tonight's NCLS Game 7? (If you know, leave us a hint in the comments, please.)

Meanwhile, here's Weezy gettin' all affectionate for our boys in the orange and black:

Apparently this came about because Weezy and the Giants' Ryan Theriot are old pals from Louisiana. But as for Theriot's take on the performance itself? "Well, I heard it," Theriot said, according to Yahoo's Big League Sports blog. "We're going to have to talk about the melody just a touch, a little bit. Know what I mean? His teeth looked good." -- @iPORT

  • 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.'"
