Default Raptors New Intro Song?

Hmmmm ... Devlin gives us a hint in his blog today, but doesn't make you think of a particular song or artist. At least not for me, but I can only imagine its another hip-hop song.

Kardinal Offishall maybe?

I know that last year the song was “Stronger” by Kanye West. As for this year, it’s been tightly guarded but I hope the themes give you an idea of where they are going with it.

I think its likely a song regarding the "TDot" and I recall that Kardinal Offishall likes to rap about Toronto. That's my guess though .... don't know the names of any of his songs.

Wow, Northern Touch - sniped. Think the Raptors could get pumped up to Bobcaygeon by the Tragically Hip? There's a stanza about Toronto in there.

I think Kardinal probably did a custom song for the team - he's very creative like that - and it would be nice to hear something made just for the city and team

..if not, they probably will use "Bakardi Slang" or "Ol Time Killin".. not "Dangerous" though.. I can't see it.. they'd have to do some creative wordplay.
