The weeks leading up to every Tennessee Football season brings in a handful of amazing fan-made pump-up videos, and every year I find myself wishing that these videos had some homegrown music in them. It finally occurred to me that I know how to edit video. Crazy, right? All this time.
I knew just the songs that I wanted immediately. It's heavy on hip-hop, because the genre lends itself very well to football highlights, and I'm tired of hearing people say that Knoxville doesn't have hip-hop. Here it is. Soak it in.
It's absolutely perfect that The Black Cadillacs' most popular song is called "Choke," and we have clips from Steve Spurrier's post-game presser from the USCe game. A gift from the Football Gods.
I would like to emphasize that I never once considered putting any Kenny Chesney song in this video. You Gator chomp unironically in a public place, and you lose Vol highlight video privileges.
Here are the songs that are in the video. There are links to their music and social media in the video.
- LiL iFFy - "1,000 Enemies"
- Tim Lee 3 - "Devil's Rope"
- Tone - "Run It"
- Taylor, Brndn - "The Ritual
- Black Cadillacs - "Choke"
