Style. Confidence. Swag.
Call it what you will, but Florida Gulf Coast University has it by the pound, and now has an anthem to go along with it.
The Azuls dunked their way into the national spotlight while handling No. 2 seed Georgetown on Friday. The win torched brackets nationwide, leaving basketball fans everywhere to wonder, “Where in the Sam Hill are these guys from?”
The answer: Dunk City.
FGCU’s jaw-dropping run to the Sweet 16 has caused a tidal wave of excitement during the NCAA tourney, and the team's high-flying dunks have inspired the program’s first anthem.
A rapper who calls himself “Black Magic” has taken up the task, penning “Dunk City,” a tribute to the team’s thrilling upsets and, more importantly, its habit of slamma-jamming the rock and taking opponents on frequent trips to Lob Town, USA.
Five days ago, Black Magic and Bambi probably had no intentions of penning a song about a No. 15 seed, but after the domination the team displayed this weekend, these FGCU fans have all the right in the world to talk about us “throwin’ alleys” and how “coach Enfield is married to a model."
Goofy, cheesy and to the point, “Dunk City” is the perfect anthem for the Azuls’ tournament run. While he’s no Black Thought, Black Magic speaks the truth when he says, “You top seeds should all be in fear.”
