We’re kicking off our Super Bowl coverage with recording artist and producer “DurtE.” He’s a solo artist from the great state of Pennsylvania. His music is a unique blend of hip hop coupled with blue-collar content. He’s managed to bring in millions of streams and views. He also landed placements on two projects that were distributed nationally with Walmart and other retail stores.

Music and sports go hand in hand almost in a symbiotic way. You really can’t have one without the other. They both motivate us, invoke emotion, and artists just like athletes are pushed to the limits to deliver their craft.
We see music directly correlate to sports everywhere. Whether it’s the familiar anthems “We are the Champions” or “We will Rock You” by Queen. The Weeknd’s popular jam, “Blinding Lights,” or the motivating sounds of Archie Eversole’s “We Ready.” Rock, Country, hip hop and other genres are embedded in sports in some fashion.
What happens when sports and music directly collide. When the song has direct meaning and intent to the team or the game being played. That’s exactly what happened when DurtE wrote and produced his anthem, “Buc ‘em Up.” It was actually on a bet with his friend that he wrote this song for his favorite team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Here’s what you’ll hear in Episode 12 of The Commissioner’s Corner -
- Playing Tecmo Bowl at an early age started DurtE’s love for the Bucs over 25 years ago.
- What it means to be a fan, and making it back to the Super Bowl after 18 years.
- Comparing Super Bowl XXXVII to this year’s run to Super Bowl LV.
- Music influence on sports and how they impact each other.
- Bucs Nation premier of “Buc ‘em Up” by DurtE.
