Been looking for Royals’ pregame music to get you pumped up?

The hip-hop duo Center of Attention dropped this song, “Straight Outta Kauffman,” and it includes lyrics like:

“We can be down in the ninth, I don’t worry,

I bet 50 dollars Perez and Gordo will send them home in a hurry...”

And here’s a little more.

“My feet move as fast as J-Dyson

Competition can’t keep up and don’t like it

Went undefeated longer than any other team in the league

while ESPN is still silent...”

On its bandcamp page, Center of Attention said it is a “hip-hop duo composed of thePhantom* and KJ from Kansas City.”

Take a listen:

What’s interesting is that in April, Craig Smith also released a Royals song called “Straight Outta Kauffman:”
