As you may recall, Ottawa-based rapper SVDVM went viral in 2017 for “Auston Matthews,” a entice music devoted to the Toronto Maple Leafs star that truly kinda slapped. “Auston Matthews/ Auston Matthews/ Hit ‘em with the 4 like Auston Matthews/ BRUP BRUP BRUP BRUP!” went the outbreak-ready hook, referencing the 4 objectives the ahead scored in his NHL debut. Enjoyable stuff.
Effectively, within the wake of the Leafs’ 5-0 clobbering of the Tampa Bay Lightning in Recreation 1 of their first-round playoff sequence, SVDVM has returned with one other tune devoted to Papi, “Playoff Anthem (Auston Matthews II).”
The brand new monitor flips a pattern of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Heads Will Roll” for an EDM-inspired affair meant to cost up the Leafs throughout their post-season run. “Hit ‘em with the 4 now it’s time for the playoffs,” goes the hook, calling again the unique.
“I’ve been getting lots of requests to make one other hockey anthem from my supporters, and I’m an enormous fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs,” SVDVM says of the music. “I really like the entire group and for Auston Matthews to be at this stage in his profession, it’s superb, so I simply needed to make one other anthem!”
On “Playoff Anthem (Auston Matthews II),” SVDVM makes reference to Matthews “chillin with Bieber, livin’ that rockstar way of life,” but in addition makes positive to shout-out Papi’s line mate. “I let Marner borrow my skrrr/ He shot 4 then he threw it up/ He don’t miss, identical to Matthews,” he spits.
Releasing a gentle stream on singles during the last couple years, SVDVM has been serving to to place Ottawa’s hip-hop scene on the map. (That’s proper, the Leafs are on such a roll even people in Sens territory can’t deny it.)
