Bay Area rap artists are now 2-for-2 on the season when it comes to 49ers-inspired tracks.
First was Bailey’s “Who’s Got It Better”, which sampled coach Jim Harbaugh blaring throughout. Now we offer you Ashkon‘s “Niners in Paris”, which, basically, if you like Jay-Z and Kanye West, and you’re a 49ers fan, there’s no way you won’t instantly start bobbing your head.
As a side note, the choice of sampling Jay-Z is a bit curious, being that he’s from New York. Perhaps this is a dig at the Giants ahead of the NFC Championship Game?
In any event, Niners fans should like Ashkon getting involved in the Niners craze. The last time he made a tune about a San Francisco team in the playoffs, the Giants went on to win the 2010 World Series.
