Player Anthems: When Sports Teams Adopt Rap Songs

Monday night (Jan. 7), Florida State defeated Auburn in college football's BCS National Championship game, in a thrilling 34-31 victory. The game itself had its share of rap-related moments — like Auburn coaches calling a play by holding a picture of Jay Z with the caption "Tom Ford" — but the most hip-hop moment of the bowl season belonged to Michigan State, which adopted Rich Homie Quan's "Type of Way" as a team anthem during the year. The Spartans took it one step further, inviting Rich to join them for their recent games. Read on for more sports teams that have picked up rap songs over the years.
