Rappers and Baseball Hats: NL Central

Wherein I continue to milk this gimmick for all it’s worth.  Today, rappers doing baseball stuff all things National League Central.

Houston Astros

Houston has a pretty good rap game going, but not a great picture-taking/uploading/archiving of rappers wearing Astros hat going, so you get Paul Wall in jorts.

Chicago Cubs

Cubs hat, Bulls sweatshirt, Cheetah pants, Lil’ Wayne.

Pittsburgh Pirates

Duh.

Cincinnati Reds

So here’s the thing: Cincinnati hats are heavily associated with the BLoods, because of the ‘blood’ red color. And the Game (or The Game, or whatever) is associated with the Bloods. Hence the hat.

BUT

Here’s the other thing: The only hat just as associated with gang culture is a blue Dodgers hat (the Crips, arch-nemesis to the Bloods), and the Game, besides reppin’ a crisp red cap is also reppin’ a LA face tattoo. Sup with you, the (The) Game?

Regardless, as the opening line to his joint “Red Nation” states: “Throw your muthafucking Cincinnati hats in the sky.”

St. Louis Cardinals

Duh.

Milwaukee Brewers

I really think that Ma$e only wore this hat just because it has an ‘M’ on it. Which helped me out a lot on this post. I don’t know if you guys know, but Milwaukee isn’t a hip-hop hotbed. Thanks Ma$e!

Now go sign some SOPA/PIPA petition. Like this one here.

    The Angels need to market their red caps to the Bloods. Or is the problem that “Angels” doesn’t sound very gangsta?

    Look at the insane bend job on the Brewers hat! Not really sure what to think there but baseball is probably hanging their heads in shame.

    ok, but the bigger question is how is a blood gonna wear a hat with a gigantic C on it? what was he thinking?

    i think at some point the game even figured this out and switched to all-red boston red sox caps, which obviously have Bs on them instead of Cs. and fellow noted bloods bird man and lil wayne seem to favor nationals caps.

    crips obviously have it easy because the dodgers wear blue.
