On the song “Johnny College” from the album released this week, The Urban Hitchcock LP, producer Jonathan Hay calls out the University of Louisville basketball program about the post season ban for the ACC and NCAA tournament. Hay says on the intro that “Louisville got washed out by Hurricane Katina” in reference to Katina Powell, the woman who brought out the sex scandals against Louisville, a story that has been a nightmare for Cardinal fans.
Towards the end of the song, Hay calls on the Cardinal’s fifth year senior Damion Lee to get in contact with him after his season ends. Apparently Hay is quite impressed with Lee’s rapping skills and has previously worked with the 2013 NCAA National Champions, Peyton Siva and Russ Smith. Sadly, Lee’s season ends this Saturday against Virginia.
A die-hard Louisville fan, Hay also calls out the school’s longtime rival The University of Kentucky as being bad for Drake’s brand, and warns Drake, whom he refers to as “the new Jay Z”, that his constant presence at UK could end in recruiting violations for the University. Hay is apparently alluding that Kentucky uses Drake as “bait” to lure recruiting classes and bring teenage players in as they will get access to rap superstar.
Chaz Ultra, the song’s lead rapper from Norwalk, Connecticut, mentions former Texas college superstar quarterback Johnny Manziel, who has been hampered with off-field problems since his college days. Eminem’s rapper, Kxng Crooked from Slaughterhouse, can be heard on the intro and outro of the song. “Johnny College” and The Urban Hitchcock LP is available on all streaming services and digital retail outlets. The album is loaded with hip-hop royalty, including Public Enemy member Professor Griff, who made major headlines this week for his Oscar outrage.
