The NFL is back in action! Now that the sports schedule is slowing down with the Golden State Warriors clinching another championship win, LeBron James taking his talents to Hollywood, and France winning the men's World Cup, football fans are rejoicing. NFL training camp is now upon us and fans (who are still watching) are ready for the new season to start. To see if the Philadelphia Eagles are well on their way to another Super Bowl title, The Sports Fan Journal has you covered with all the latest tunes to prepare you for another season. So rock your team’s jersey and check out our Get Hype playlist below:
DJ Khaled feat. Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper and Quavo, 'No Brainer'
Another one! The summer isn't complete unless DJ Khaled is releasing a sizzling anthem. He teams up with Bieber, Chance and Quavo on their latest since 2017's 'I'm The One.' The summer bop is sure to be playing on all airwaves.
The Carters, 'Nice'
Beyonce and Jay Z may be beaming #LifeGoals as they’re on the run on their world tour, but their Everything Is Love album is still a fan favorite. The Carters teamed up with super-producer Pharrell on this smooth track, 'Nice' that is sure to put any player in a boastful mode.
Innanet James, 'Bag'
Rising hip-hop artist Innanet James has made waves for a couple years now. His latest single, 'Bag' is in heavy rotation with a placement on the Madden NFL '19 soundtrack.
Jay Park, 'Chosen1'
“So many blessings, yet I feel like I’m the chosen one,” is what Jay Park stresses on his Roc Nation debut. If you feel like your team has a solid squad to compete for the championship this year, let Jay Park put you in the right mindset.
Lil Baby and Drake, 'Yes Indeed'
Anything Drake touches is hot and it’s not even up for a debate. The 6 God teams up with Lil Baby as they're all about living their best lives lavishly.
P-LO feat. ALLBLACK, 'No Idea'
Bay Area-bred rapper P-Lo is known for cranking out hits. He recruits ALLBLACK on this hype track 'No Idea' as they stress, "Only one that's really reppin' my side / In my zone yeah I been in my vibe / Whole gang with me, I know they gon' ride."
Rae Sremmurd, 'Powerglide'
Is a playlist really complete without the self-proclaimed Black Beatles? Rae Sremmurd may have released this track a few months back, but the infectious production still puts anyone in gametime mode.
Ciara, 'Level Up'
Russell Wilson is preparing for a tough season, as the Seattle Seahawks face long odds to get back to the top of the NFC West this season. However, as Wilson prepares for a new campaign, he’s also cheering on his wife Ciara on her latest single 'Level Up.' While the song is encouraging fans to attempt their best CiCi moves for the #LevelUpChallenge, the singer also released a remix with Missy Elliott and Fatman Scoop. Are we back in 2005 again?
Drake, 'Can't Take a Joke'
Even Pusha T’s diss track couldn’t keep Drake from dominating the charts. Drizzy’s latest album, Scorpion, is blowing up and although he has fans to thank with the #InMyFeelings challenge, Drake always has other heat up his sleeve. That’s where 'Can’t Take a Joke' comes in, yes, another track full of Instagram-worthy captions.
Meek Mill, 'Millidelphia'
After the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl, it’s only right that the players are blasting any Meek Mill in the locker room. If there’s any rapper who is putting on for their city, it’s Meek.
Stam Goody, 'Clutch'
Rising New Jersey rapper Stam Goody may note many basketball references like Michael Jordan and John Wall in his latest track, however his visual is even more powerful. He looks at the life of being a Black athlete, dealing with race relations, and protesting. And in today’s political climate, we all know the NFL has long way to go in regards to caring and supporting its players.
This new Logic track may be a featured song on the Uncle Drew soundtrack, however ballers on the field have to feel like they are the best at what they do as well.
Cardi B, 'Get Up 10'
“Knock me down nine times, but I get up ten.” Cardi B is all about going from nothing to something. There are plenty of NFL players who thought they wouldn’t even play in the league, but this Cardi track is all the inspiration they need about getting money and going hard for what they want.
Derez De’Shon feat. YFN Lucci, 'Beat The Odds'
The latest single from Derez De’Shon is all about playing your cards with the hand you were dealt. Players and fans need a winning mindset to prove the naysayers wrong.
Nicki Minaj, 'Chun-Li'
Nicki Minaj is a baller in her own right and she’s ready to come back for the rap throne. Even if you’re not a member of her Barbz fan club, this song is sure to get players hype on the field.
S’natra, 'Number One'
New York rapper S’natra is asking “What does it take to be number one?” Players had all offseason to determine the answer and practice to improve their game. Teamwork makes the dream work!
