In this day and age, we all know that athletes have to be extremely versatile. They have to be the ultimate multi-taskers.
Being one-dimensional just doesn't fly these days.
A team often gets more help from a QB that can run and running backs help a lot more if they can catch. Receivers can really make things complicated for opponents if they can make plays out of the backfield.
Anyone with wheels and some moves have way more shelf life with time in the return game.
And the occasional signee needs to be able to drop that fresh beat with a little school spirit over the Internet airwaves.
Well, that's exactly what Georgia running back signee Sony Michel did. The former ESPN 300 member and No. 2-ranked running back in the 2014 recruiting class made news a few days ago when his track "UGA Anthem" by his rap name 2Stackz went viral.
The name will have to grow on me, but, then again, 2 Chainz has had quite the run of late. Then there's Big K.R.I.T. and Diddy. Oh, and the great Kendrick Lamar once used the moniker K. Dot.
2Stackz spits about his love for the Bulldogs and what he hopes to do once he finally gets on the field. There's mention of Georgia's rivals, of course. It's all clean and no real bulletin board material. I like a little trash talk in my rhymes sometimes. Don't be afraid to have some edge in your lyrics. All the greats do.
Michel will learn, and I'm sure his future experience will help him when he puts that pen to pad.
It's no Kanye West, but it isn't bad. It's not an organized, school-themed rap with mentions of wheels turning (at least I don't think it does), so I'm good with it. The beat is catchy and I got caught moving my head to it.
If you're a fan of auto-tune, you'll like it. If you're fan of the Bulldogs, you'll like it, too. Plus, this is something of a passion of Michel's. He has several other tracks you can check out as well.
Whether rap is your thing or not, you can't knock the creativity.
There's just something about Georgia's freshmen running backs
