A Rap Playlist for Tonight’s Toronto Blue Jays Vs. Philadelphia Phillies Game
The beef between Drake and Meek Mill got a little bit more interesting this morning after the Canadian superstar released a second diss track, "Back To Back," aimed at the Philly spitter. In Drake's cover art for his "Back To Back (Freestyle)" that was released today, the Canadian sensation took it back to 1993 by using the image of former Toronto Blue Jays baseball player Joe Carter celebrating his game-winning hit against the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 6 of the 1993 World Series. The hit earned the Blue Jays their second consecutive World Series championship ring (hence: back to back). But what's most odd about Drake's choice of artwork for "Back To Back" is that the Toronto Blue Jays are playing the Phillies tonight at the Roger Centre in Toronto.
As the beef between Meek and Drake heats up, so will the bats of the Phillies and Blue Jays tonight beginning at 7:30 p.m. EST. With that said, we gathered up the best playlists from Meek Mill and Drake for their respective home baseball teams and created the ultimate Blue Jays vs. Phillies playlist.
Ed. Note: We at XXL only have a working knowledge of the rules of baseball—much less how it's going this season—but here's our best shot.
"Started From The Bottom"
With the current standings in the AL East and the Blue Jays still in the race for a playoff spot, this is the perfect song for the Canadian baseball team to get inspired and reach the top spot of their division.
Romeo Santos Feat. Drake
The biggest ball players in the Blue Jays line up are without a doubt Dominican. Jose Reyes, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion are the team's leaders, so it would only be fitting that they come out to the Bachata hit "Odio."
What better way to take the Rogers Centre field than with the anthem of Toronto!
Inspired by the lyrics of Drake in this tune, the Blue Jays will look to defeat their enemies tonight, which so happen to be the Philadelphia Phillies.
After winning consecutive World Series titles in the early 1990s, the Blue Jays went through several changes within their organization, but in 2015 the team has changed its behavior and is now looking for a playoff spot.
"0 to 100/The Catch Up"
Looking to stop a two game losing streak, Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey will be throwing baseballs tonight between the 0-100 speed range (Sorry).
Making the playoffs is one of the objectives, but taking the World Series trophy is the ultimate goal for the baseball team from the Six.
Drake Feat. Lil Wayne and Tyga
Every professional sports team has a motto each season; for the Blue Jays, their motto may indeed be a Drake lyric. You never know.
While rap beef is making headlines around the world, the Blue Jays look to put on a spectacular game against the Phillies and make headlines of their own.
"Rose Red" (Remix)
Meek Mill Feat. T.I., Vado and Rick Ross
Although the Phillies currently stand in the last place of the NL East division, the Philly squad find themselves in the midst of a five game winning streak, so if they win the game tonight against the Blue Jays, expect the Phillies to pop Rose Red bottles.
Meek Mill Feat. Young Chris
Nothing represents Philadelphia more than a track that caters to the Philly house parties, and if the Phillies beat the Blue Jays tonight there may just be a house party after the team's road games this week.
Meek Mill Feat. Rick Ross
Because what better way for the Phillies to celebrate their win against the Blue Jays tonight than with the ultimate boss of all boss' record?
Meek Mill Feat. Drake and Jeremih
Although the Phillies have had an awful season thus far, their current five game winning streak may turn into six, and that is a blessing for the Philly baseball fans. And having the Blue Jays/Drake as a part of it would make it all the sweeter. AMEN!
Meek Mill Feat. Big Sean
The bats better be burning for the nine men on the Phillies' offensive roster.
"Dreams and Nightmares"
The staple track of Meek Mill's catalog will have any have Philly baseball player focused and ready to hit the diamond.
"Young & Gettin' It"
Meek Mill Feat. Kirko Bangz
With the amount of new rookies on the Phillies' team, the young gunners may put the squad in a better situation after tonight.
"Jump Out The Face"
Meek Mill Feat. Future
If you're a Phillies die-hard fan, you're probably looking to jump put the window with the team's record this year, but the Phillies may be jumping out the face tonight if they manage to beat the Blue Jays.
Like any Meek Mill intro track, as soon as the record hits the bats will be swinging in full force and Lord Knows the Phillies desperately need help from their batting line up.
