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.
