The Mariners may not have realized when they traded for Austin Jackson at last season’s trade deadline that they were adding one of the foremost rap coinsures in all of baseball. AJ rocked out to Jay-Z in 2014, but this season he went with “Me Ok” by (Formerly Young) Jeezy.

C. I feel much the same way about this song as Cano’s selection of “Blessings.” It is a solid hip-hop song with a good rapper, but it is sorely missing the fun factor. The song has a nice bounce to it, and it has a thick stench of swag. Overall, it is a middle of the pack tune on this club.. CF. Seattle Mariners. AUSTIN JACKSON
