Chuck D. Gets Down With ESPN

Chuck D.

recently composed a rap themed jingle for ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. Recorded

with Public Enemy associate Gary "G Wiz." The intro theme has already

drawn praise from Sunday Night Baseball broadcasters Jon Miller and Joe Morgan.

"I know baseball, so my whole thing is to

make a lot of metaphors, don’t go too far over people’s heads," Chuck D

said. "I just tried to make something that’s in line with ‘Take Me Out

to the Ballgame,’ and a little bit of the Hank Williams Jr. ["Are You Ready

for Some Football"] thing. What he did for Monday Night Football worked

well, so all we had to do was follow that lead."
