The San Francisco 49ers’ 8-1 record is one of the NFL’s biggest surprises, but running back Anthony Dixon saw this day coming. In fact, “Boobie” saw predicted all this over a year ago, in a short rap Dixon performed in an interview with CSN Bay Area on June 11, 2010.
A little before midnight on November 15, 2011, Dixon tweeted the link to the time he showed off his lyrical skills:
In the video, I’m not sure if he’s freestyling, reciting something he wrote or a little of both. Regardless, in the very first line Dixon touches on the same lack of respect issue that’s irked some 49ers fans who feel like the national media is doing all they can to avoid talking about the Niners as a legitimate contender. I did the best I could in an attempt to transcribe Dixon’s lyrics:
It don’t matter what the polls say
49ers bringing the Super Bowl back to the Bay
Anybody try and stop it gotta pay
Gotta play 60 minutes and we’re staying, ah, beat you to the face
Physical’s the style
Not from the wild west but your boy get wild
My apologies to Dixon if what I came up with was a little off, especially around the fourth line. I’m not the best at deciphering the correct lyrics for any song; I thought in that song “A Milli” that Lil’ Wayne continually said, “Emily, Emily, Emily, Emily…” Or maybe that was actually my cousin Emily who tried to convince me that was true at a family get together last year. It really doesn’t matter either way, I suppose.
Now that the 49ers look to be playoff bound, maybe it’s time for Dixon turn this short rap into a full-length song — upgrade it from mixtape-worthy to the first single off his new album, Boobiestyle. Ian Williams and Ricky Jean-Francois can do the PB&J dance in the video.
