Rich Homie Quan is now part of Michigan State’s team camaraderie.

This afternoon, the No. 4 Spartans will kick off against No. 5 Stanford in the Rose Bowl. However, the biggest difference between the two teams is not their players, records or stats. It’s actually the presence of Quan who will be on the Spartan sidelines giving moral support.

"For me to be on the field with Michigan State at the Rose Bowl, I'll have the butterflies,'' Quan tells MLive in a phone interview. "I didn't go to college, so this means a lot. I just want to shout out to the whole Michigan State alumni, it's so special just to be a part of this movement.''

The Spartan have been posting viral videos of dances in the locker room to “Type Of Way.” Their relationship grew as more people from the staff joined in on the celebrations, including head coach Mark Dantonio. A personal shout-out by Dantonio during a post-game interview cemented that Michigan State respected Quan’s rise and his hit-making abilities.

He says Dantonio calling him out "sent chills through me" and that the Spartans using his music to celebrate made him take music more seriously. "They helped me out in a way I would never know," he said.

In the article, Quan also speaks on meeting cornerback Darqueze Dennard, bouncing back after serving 15 months for burglary and who he sees taking home the Rose Bowl trophy. For more, read the rest here.
