In a classic move by a large company with a great deal of money to spend (Gatorade), a famous artist has been enlisted to create an original track for a marketing campaign. The one in question today would be that of Wale creating an original theme song for the upcoming documentary about Robert Griffin III, which is aptly entitled “RGIII: The Will to Win.” ESPN released a 60-second teaser and it features at least a portion of the track by Wale and here it is for your listening pleasure. If you can think of a time that an artist created an original hip hop track for a movie, video game or trailer and it was actually good I’d love to hear about it. Lyrics courtesy of DC Sports Blog: Intro: Keep fighting till you overcome In the jungle beat the drums Ooooooo ooooooo Victory I must get Tell me can you feel my pain? Noooo oooooo Verse 1: Uh uh, yea I’m a gladiator I’m a fighting champion a warrior I’m a family man I gotta pay my dues but can’t afford to run Hold my head up high and never let up nah maybe it’s foolish pride And if I gotta lose then make me fall down four times, I get up five I’m committed to this, I’m addicted to winnin but ain’t livin for that Tryin to get em to see I don’t do it for me as long as I’m givin civilians a hundred million percent This is hard work, this is our turf, I’m a carry the city till my arms hurt I’m a move make and never lose faith I know the easy plays do the hard work Chorus: No pain no gain No strife no stripes No blood no bash For the burgundy & gold never hold nothin’ back No pain no gain No strife no stripes No blood no bash For the burgundy and gold we gone always fight… x2 Verse 2: Look we came to work, we came to win, they came to watch so let the pregame begin The defense will be sick, when we get up in The trenches, relentless till we put up six Where your focus at? Where your soldiers at? You never got to ask It ain’t no holdin back until we on the map No pain no gain Though it hurt I won’t quit yea And if I’m on one leg I’m a still be here all year won’t sit Stand tall for the whole team Work hard when its dark keep focused See the odds keep dodgin them all if you fall go harder Cuz you here for a purpose [DC Sports Blog] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
