The Bond Between Rich Homie Quan and Michigan State
Rapper Rich Homie Quan can't wait to be "getting out of 285'' and head to the Rose Bowl before the Jan. 1 game kicks off.
Quan, a 24-year-old rapper from Atlanta (which is encircled by the Interstate 285 beltway), is the artist who wrote and performed the "Type of Way" song that has become the anthem for Michigan State football's magical 2013 season.
A plan to join Quan with the team and the coaching staff in Los Angeles is in place, all indications being that he'll be present and a part of the Spartans' Rose Bowl journey some type of way sooner than later.
"I want to be out there in a green jersey and feel a part of Michigan State,'' Quan told MLive.com in an exclusive interview. "I want to be at the game, I want to be out there with them. I feel a part of Michigan State now, and you don't even know what it means to me.''
"I wanted to come with a phrase I know that will last forever,'' Quan said. "I wanted to have a song that would stick in people's head forever. I'm so glad they picked my song to get turned up to.''
Quan said he had become a fan of the Michigan State football program even before the team had adopted them.
"They go out there with swagger, to bust people in the mouth,'' Quan said. "I know win or lose, people are gonna feel some type of way after playing them.''
I know I, for one, love Rich Homie Quan, but I can't say i feel the way about MSU, who beat Nebraska earlier this year. I'll be rooting for Stanford in the Rose Bowl for sure.
