Meek Mill Being Held down in His Own City as Philadelphia Eagles Will Walk out to One of His Songs for Super Bowl Sunday
“I’m ridin’ around my city with my hand strapped on my toast
‘Cause these n***as want me dead and I gotta make it back home”
The Philadelphia Eagles remain the underdog as they head face to face with the New England Patriots this upcoming Super Bowl 52. Since it’s debut in 1967, the team has qualified for the postseason 21 times and only advanced on three of those occasions. However, despite their efforts, the Eagles have been unsuccessful in retrieving the Lombardy trophy.
As the Eagles have done most of this season, Meek Mill’s “Dreams and Nightmares (Intro)” off of his debut album Dreams and Nightmares will be a big part of their Super Bowl routine. The popular song by Philly’s own has been an unofficial anthem of sorts, with the team playing it before and after their NFC Championship Game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Meek Mill is currently incarcerated for probation violations, so it seems fitting that the underdogs would champion their own in a time when he is down and has a lot to prove once he gets out.
“Meek, you know, he’s locked up right now,” “So we have to hold the city down for him… It just gets us going. It gives us good energy. Just a little extra juice.”
In a recent interview with NFL.com, Defensive end Brandon Graham said “Meek, you know, he’s locked up right now, so we have to hold the city down for him… It just gets us going. It gives us good energy. Just a little extra juice.”
