If Journey's not your thing -- or if you've just heard Askon Davaran's now-ubiquitous "Don't Stop Believing" anthem for the S.F. Giants enough times -- a pack of SFC rappers including San Quinn, Big Rich, CellskiDaVinci, and Roach Gigz have you covered with "Black & Orange," a swooping lyrical ode to the team that just brought home the biggest trophy in baseball. (Behind the track -- which you can download here -- are also KMEL's DJ Amen and DJ Prince Aries.)

On Monday, the whole crew went down to AT&T Park and filmed a video for what will likely be the preeminent hip-hop telling of this year's World Series-winning season. (Kanye West aside, of course.) The result is bold, braggalicious, and makes us fair-weather fans look like the bandwagon-riders we are. Highlights: A Harley-Davidson gas tank in Halloween colors, and Roach Gigz' impressively ornate Giants' tattoo, along with plenty of solid hometown rhymes. Watch "Black & Orange" after the jump.

Here it is, the video for "Black & Orange":
