Merrill Reese reads rap lyrics

“I’m beginning to feel like a rap god”

Eagles radio play by play announcer Merrill Reese has a voice so great that you would listen to him read the phone book. Better yet, rap lyrics.

You can tell that this is completely foreign to him. His reactions are funny and his delivery on Wu Tang Clan’s C.R.E.A.M. could use improvement. However his recital of Chamillionaire’s Ridin’ was spot on. Maybe he could use it next time Kenjon Barner scores, ala Florida Panthers announcer Randy Moller’s occasional goal calls.

It looks like "Merrill Reads" is going to be a recurring feature. What will be next? More rap lyrics? If so can we get All I Do Is Win just to see him throw his hand up? Metal lyrics? The St. Crispin’s Day speech?
