Hold onto your jocks, Gronk Nation. Your anthem has arrived.
Hot off of the gangster griddle is “GameTime (Gronkowski),” a new rap track by UNO.
Spotted by GronkNation.com, the song features a music video showing America’s favorite wild man/tight end doing all of the things that he does so well.
The video is a supercut of Gronk footage, with UNO’s voice rapping all the while. The montage shows Rob Gronkowski catching touchdowns, spanking pinatas and spiking various items/powders into the ground.
Why all the excessive sweating and chalk slinging? Because it’s provocative. It gets the people going.
The video starts with Gronkowski shoulder pressing weights and a voice telling listeners that the Gronk is back, Jack.
“It’s Gronk. It feels good to be back. Get hype. I approve this message.”
Would Gronk approve of this? Most likely, considering there’s little not to love in this project if you’re a New England fan.
From a musical standpoint, UNO’s lyrics are clean and less ridiculous than you’d imagine, considering it’s a rap about Gronkowski. Instead of focusing on Gronk's photo ops with adult film stars and breakdance wrestling, UNO keeps the focus on the game.
These are some of the lines from “GameTime (Gronkowski)":
“I hear the allegations but don’t get involved / I just want to get back on the field and do my job.”
“Be the best at my position, going all out it don’t matter the condition / If I’m doing me then there ain’t no competition / Anybody talk different, I use that as ammunition.”
So there you have it, New England—your very own Gronk theme song, complete with non-explicit lyrics and “do your job” theme.
Somewhere, Bill Belichick is nodding his head in cautious approval.
