The AJC has a great story on a fun and clever YouTube video created by some Grayson High students to hype Friday night’s football game between the Grayson Rams and the Brookwood Broncos.
I have posted “Brookwood, Where You At?” here for you to watch. The student performers and writers deserve all the attention they are getting. This is a blast. (I also posted Brookwood’s response. It is also terrific.)
The Grayson teens who created the rap and produced the beat have appeared on local television performing their hit. It has spread across metro Atlanta radio and is being downloaded on iTunes by the score.
“This is a modern day version of saying ‘I’ve got spirit, how about you?’” said Grayson senior Kawan Moore, who came up with the idea for the rap and appears first in the video. “Hopefully, it will catch on.”
The song has sparked several responses, including “Grayson, Step Up Your Game,” the “official” comeback released by Brookwood seniors Wednesday. The students say they plan to donate any proceeds to Relay for Life, an American Cancer Society charity supported by Gwinnett County Public Schools, where they honed the talent that helped them to rhyme.
