Rakontur's highly anticipated documentary on University of Miami football, The U, premiers on ESPN on December 12, and this latest bit of news has us even more excited: Uncle Luke has recorded the theme song.
Luther Campbell, The 2 Live Crew rapper, was persona non grata at UM for a decade and a half after admitting to paying players for big plays, and threatening to reveal other secrets about the team. But head coach Randy Shannon, who played when Campbell was a constant sideline presence, quietly welcomed Campbell back into the fold.
We imagine some uptight higher-ups at the school might not be thrilled at the aspect of the As Nasty As They Wanna Be rapper is putting his stamp on the documentary, then again, The U doesn't promise to be a rainbow filled trip down Hurricane history. That hasn't stopped the doc from getting an on-campus screening on December 10, a day after the film premieres at Colony Theater.
In the meantime, we'll continue to stare at the picture of Sebastian the Ibis being slammed up against a fence by police currently featured on Rakontur's homepage, and wondering if it is perhaps the single, greatest image ever.
