The Kansas City Royals' World Series run last fall sparked a surge of civic pride. Tech N9ne's "KCMO" was one of the many KC tributes inspired by the first Royals championship in 30 years. This afternoon, HNHH premieres another tribute: chief waKiL's "Crowns."
waKil is a Grammy-nominated producer/songwriter who has worked for such shows as "Empire" & "Power." "Crowns" is in effect a soulful flip of Tupac's "California Love" that shoutouts various regions of Kansas City and unites them under the banner over the Royals (as well as the Chiefs, who had a big year).
waKiL is currently working on an album that will be released later this year. Stream "Crowns" and let us know what you think in the comments.
We came a long way but we ain't finished the job yet
I want to see my people make it up out the projects
It's greatness all the way from Blue Springs to Prospect
If we ain't got each other, what the fuck do we got left
