Well, this is weird. There's an undefeated team in town. And with the 12-0 Cougars hosting Southern Miss this Saturday, H-town loyalty is understandably high. We now have the perfect anthem for this weekend's conference showdown, thanks to a triumvirate of Houston hip-hop titans.
For his newest edition of the increasingly awesome Thug Thursdays, Slim Thug recruited Paul Wall and Bun B to help inspire Cougar pride. "U of H Fight Song" is a triumphant throwdown of sorts, leather-cushioned with thick drums, trumpets and sports references, the beat so emphatically charming that you forget it's actually a novelty tune.
Slim Thug: "My team stay winning from beginning to the ending/Me and Paul Wall the perfect match like Pat & Keenum"
Paul Wall: "I've been calling plays like Coach Sumlin, you can go review my stats..." / "I'm here running routes like Patrick Edwards"
Bun B: "It's nothing. Got ground game. Got air game. Got defense. It's not fair, mayne/And I swear, mayne, don't try to disrespect us, cuz when you diss the Cougars, mayne you dissing Houston, TX"
