PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) — After watching a horrendous video in which Detroit Tigers fans tried to rap in support of Miguel Cabrera’s All-Star Game candidacy, The Fan Morning Show decided to do its own All-Star raps for four Pirates players.

Gregg Giannotti, Paul Alexander, Jim Colony, and co-producer Ben Livingston (a.k.a. “Teen Wolf”) each chose a dominant Pirates player, and then wrote a rap song (set to Biggie’s “Hypnotize”) to explain why that player deserves to be in the 2013 All-Star Game.

All six raps can be heard below:

Jason Grilli:

Pedro Alvarez:

Jeff Locke:

Mark Melancon:

And finally, we knew Andrew McCutchen would be an All Star again. But, we decided to have a rap battle between the Catfish (Joe Kapp) and the General (Mike Kearney).
