Major League Baseball Teams up with Hip Hop Superstars Migos for 2018 Postseason Anthem
Nothing says America more than baseball and Hip Hop! Combine the two and we have a major showcase surrounding two of the country’s most powerful and globally impactful creations! Sports and music have always gone together so when Major League Baseball sought out a musical teammate for its 2018 #Postseason campaign, they drafted three of the most powerful hitters in Hip Hop…the Migos! We are so proud for these cats and for the recognition of Hip Hop by MLB!!! ~ JD
Here’s the official line on the dynamic collab
Trio Performs “Is You Ready” for New Spot Anchoring MLB’s #Postseason Campaign
MLB unveiled a special video collaboration this weekend featuring acclaimed hip-hop recording artists Migos as part of its 2018 Postseason campaign. The new spot featuring the trio performing their track “Is You Ready” made its broadcast debut nationally on Saturday, September 15th and will be used throughout the 2018 MLB Postseason.
The special collaboration includes airing in national assets and across global media outlets with versions in both English and Spanish, as well as in ballparks around the league. Exclusive behind the scenes content and interviews with Quavo, Offset and Takeoff, captured during the shoot in downtown Brooklyn in early September, will roll out throughout the pennant races in September and into Postseason action in October.
“I’m a sports guy, so when I heard about this MLB opportunity, it was a go for me. I like when music and sports collide because we all grew up on both. A lot of MLB players use our songs for their walk-up music, so this collab will get them amped,” said Migos group member Offset.
The Kris Merc directed MLB Network/Lair/Charlie Company produced spot also includes baseball highlights of players from contending teams. The MLB Postseason starts on Tuesday, October 2nd, click here for the schedule.Tweet
