Miami-based rap group, No Good, who have just signed a recording contract with Ted Field’s ARTISTdirect Records, have found themselves not only in the recording studio making their debut album, but in the Miami Hurricane’s locker room acting as “championship inspiration.”
No Good’s song, “Ballin’ Boy,” has been adopted by the Miami Hurricanes as the team’s “fight song,” and has been played in the locker room to get the players psyched up before a game. And it’s apparently been working, as the Hurricanes are the undisputed No. 1 college team in the country, having been undefeated this entire season. A special copy of “Ballin’ Boy” will accompany the ‘Canes when they travel to Pasadena, CA to face the No. 2 ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers on January 3 at the 2002 Rose Bowl game for the NCAA title.
So, who does No Good have their money on to win the Bowl Championship Series (BCS)? According to No Good’s Derrick Hill, “As long as they have our ‘Ballin’ Boy’ blasting in their locker room, Miami is taking home the trophy.”
And very soon, there will be a special promo version of “Ballin’ Boy” as members of the ‘Canes are scheduled to join No Good in the studio this weekend to record the track.
No Good is currently in the studio with the Black Mob Group production team recording their debut album set for release on ARTISTdirect Records in 2002.
