Every great team deserves a fight song. But a team on the verge of a miracle season needs an anthem.
‘Dreamin’ has become that anthem for BYU.
Earlier today the BYU Football Video team released a tribute to the team that has garnered national attention for two weeks in a row. The hip-hop song is performed by Provo rapper, JamestheMormon and singer Yahosh Bonner.
The song highlights Tanner Mangum, Taysom Hill, and the miracle season that BYU is bound to have.
I got to hop on a phone call with JamestheMormon to ask a few questions about the music video’s conception.
Q: So how’d you get in contact with BYU?
A: Sam Wilder, who works for the BYU Football video department, is a friend of mine and called me up. He pitched the idea and I thought it was a great time for BYU to have a song written about them. I had the hook the written already, and decided to use it for this song.
Q: How long have you been a BYU fan?
A: I grew up overseas so didn’t have the BYU bug as a child, but during the Jimmer phenomenon I became a BYU fan and haven’t left since. I consider myself a true BYU fan at this point.
Q: Can we expect any more BYU collaborations in the future?
A: If they want me to, I’m open to anything. But we haven’t talked about it.
Q: Can any other players on the team rap that we don’t know about?
A: (Laughing) I asked if anyone on the team wanted to rap and I got no response. So, I guess not.
