A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Pittsburgh MC Wiz Khalifa’s new song “Black & Yellow” which has become a sort of anthem for the Steelers and the city of Pittsburgh. The song has gotten so popular that other hip-hop artists are going in on the beat themselves. Wale’s rendition is probably the best freestyle of Black & Yellow that I’ve heard so far and the best part is that it is called “Mike Tomlin.” Yes, Wale’s freestyle is named after the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Coach Tomlin has always been “cool.” He looks like a tough customer out there rocking the long sleeves in training camp or wearing sunglasses at night, but getting his own rap song takes it to a new level. The Steelers might not win the Super Bowl, but they are on their way to claiming the title for “Most Swag” thanks to Wiz Khalifa and Wale.
