“Tradition: Hail to the Chiefs” Video Will Make You Feel The Arrowhead Experience

Addicts, it’s fun when the Kansas City Chiefs are winning. Chiefs fans aren’t upset, or grumpy and really cool things like new songs by local artists are released, complete with YouTube videos. This kind of stuff wasn’t happening last year when the Chiefs were only 1-7 by this point in the season. I think it’s safe to say we won’t be hearing in songs about how good the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are any time soon. But there are plenty of artists singing the praises of the Chiefs.

Last week, Andrew Kulha posted a video remixing the famous — and beloved — Warchant of the Chiefs, the “Tomahawk Chop.”  This week, I present to you “Tradition: Hail to the Chiefs.” This is a completely original song by local Kansas City hip hop artist Nicholas Grooms. The song caputres the pulse of the Chiefs fan base, and the video is awesome, showing the tailgating atmosphere that accompanies every home game at Arrowhead. I also love that he gives a shout out to the original “Red and Yellow” artist, Irv da Phenom, who performs the themesong to AA Radio.

Give this song a listen. I guarantee you won’t be sorry you did.

We’re all Raider haters — and tailgaters

Here it is.

    This is really great, and I enjoyed it very much. I do think there may be room for some diversification of the lyrics toward the end. Now I am no artist or anything so these ideas may be terrible, but how about…

    We’re all tailgaters, and raider haters…
    …call Gates up if we need to cater
    …we vote republican, no Ralph Nader
    …on the X-Factor we voted for Tater
    …gets cold here…far from the equator
    …go to Jacks Stack…BBQ with a waiter
    …love our country, no tax evaders

      • cavemanku

        LOL – glad you got a kick out of my shenanigans – great song!

      • TAZMOSIS

        Great work, dude. But if you did not see my previous comment, the colors are RED AND GOLD, NOT RED AND YELLOW.
        But a great video. GO CHIEFS!!!!

        • Jason Seibel

          Red and Yellow is the name of the song by local hip hop artist Irv da Phenom. That’s why he was saying that.

          • TAZMOSIS

            Thanks for the info, Jason.

          • TAZMOSIS

            That’s cool. But I would rather pay homage to the 8 and 0 Chiefs!

    Dope song

    Love the part about Joe Delaney. Gave me chills.

    • Jason Seibel

      A little trivia, the reason that the owners of the Chiefs Bar in Philly are Chiefs fans is because their father respected Joe Delaney so much for what he did, he went against being an Eagles fan and became a Chiefs fan, eventhough he was Philly born and bred. Pretty cool.


    Love the video! But, please tell Grooms that it is RED AND GOLD, NOT RED AND YELLOW!!!!
    Now, repeat after me……..RED AND GOLD,,,,RED AND GOLD.

    • Nicholas Grooms

      I think youd better talk to irv da phenom…that was an homage to his song “red and yellow”
