As of late, Hip-Hop’s influence on the 2013 Major League Baseball season seems like it is everywhere. With Hip-Hop being as popular as it has ever been, it’s clear that Hip-Hop is making a lasting impact on America’s so-called “favorite past-time.” First Bob Costas rapped some of Ludacris’ lyrics, then the New York Yankee’s second baseman Robinson Cano signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation sports management firm. Lets not forget the new movie 42 about the legendary Jackie Robinson that features Jay-Z’s song “Brooklyn” in the trailer.
To top it all off, the Oakland A’s have adopted a new song called the “Bernie Lean” by ATM and IMD as their new anthem for the season. Coupled with a spastic zombie looking dance, the A’s are using the song every time Coco Crisp steps up to the plate – yes his name is Coco Crisp! There are even some that are saying this may be the official song for the Oakland A’s this season when it’s all said and done.
