Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman appears on hip-hop artist Mike Stud’s latest single “Shine.” It’s actually the second time he has appeared on a Stud track. Last January he rapped on the song “These Days.”
The basis of the collaboration is not necessarily 100% artistic, however. Stroman and Stud were teammates on the Duke University baseball team. Still, as far as rapping ballplayers go, Stroman is better than . . . well, any other ballplayers who have tried rapping. Although the line “only bright side of Donald Trump is tax breaks” is . . . ugh.
Duke University: not necessarily a noted cradle of hip hop, but if there was going to be hip hop that gave nods to upper class tax breaks, you know it was going to come from Duke University.
