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":

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
