Tired of Christmas Music?
For something a little different, try the 2005-06 remix of Tha Illini
from Big Hit Buda
For those of you who are "rap challenged" in the ear, here are the lyrics as best as Illini Wonk can make them out:It's the Remix. Where we at y'all?
We make the crowd goWhere we at y'all?I-L-LUh-huhI-N-I
Yes sir! It was a wild ride
We coming back hard
Eyes still on the prize
It's a new year
Big Ten still up ahead
And it ain't goin' nowhere
Like Gene Keady's hair
Frustrate whatever coach we face
Dee for three! Money in the bank
Now they got us underrated
That's crazy as hell
It's like choosin' frozen pizzas over Papa Del's
Storm the floor, too quick on our feet
You'll meet defeat you reach your seat
Competition hear this beat, they gonna fear it
Got that U of I spirit? Then, come on let's hear it!
Where we at y'all
We make the crowd go
Where we at y'all?
I-N-IOur fans are insane
They don't miss a game
It's crazy here, that's why
Teams hate to play in the 'Paign
The whole game, all you hear is WHOAA!!
You all in the front row pounding on the floor
Non-believers step off campus
Do like Bill, take your Self to Kansas
Come to Champaign, think we can't ball?
It's like not seeing orange in Assembly Hall
Got so much orange you can't see the rim
Wear another color they won't let you in
We get teams against the ropes with alley-oops and dunks
They have the fan with the fists throw the knock-0ut punch
Where we at y'all?
We make the crowd goWhere we at y'all?
Everybody think I'm on that bandwagon ride
I've got U of I pride 'till I die
Luther and Deron are making that cheddar
But we still got Dee, Augie and Bruce WeberOur condition our position is Big Ten ChampsIt's the remix I wanna see ya danceThis year, got revenge on the HeelsOn top of that we did it in Chapel HillCome down the lane you gettin' stuffedRunnin' over teams leavin' an Orange KrushWe winning anyway when they think we can'tNow get buck wild to the Illini chantWe got our swag backI-L-LI-N-IWe make the crowd goWe got our swag backI-L-LI-N-IWe make the crowd go
