The Memphis Grizzlies Tap Breakout Hometown Star GloRilla To Narrate The Team’s 2022-23 Season Hype Video

They may be operating in two different sports, but the Memphis Grizzlies just put the Atlanta Falcons to shame in the marketing game. Last month, the Falcons were lambasted for their “Rise Up” season promo video, which featured New Jersey native Rotimi singing an generic, off-brand motivational anthem for some reason. While the attempt was a promising step in the NFL’s ongoing efforts to appeal to younger fans (and, well… you know), it also showed how far the league has to go to catch up to the NBA.

Today, though, the Grizzlies showed just how much more in-touch with the zeitgeist the NBA really is with their own 2022-23 season hype video. Instead of a moderately well-known out-of-towner best recognized for his role in Power, the Grizz tapped hometown rising star GloRilla, whose breakout single “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)” began and ended the “song of the summer” debate this year, to narrate their “Big Memphis” promo and show how teams can highlight the connection with their respective cities. Glo’s distinctive voice booms out over a thumping trap track, declaring, “This is our city… everything we do here is big!”

After the success of “F.N.F.,” Memphis godfather Yo Gotti signed GloRilla to his label Collective Music Group, releasing a remix of the track featuring JT of City Girls and Latto (and nixing another remix featuring Saweetie). Since then, her breakout year continued this past weekend as Cardi B joined her on the boisterous “Tomorrow 2” and ASAP Rocky brought her out during his short headlining set at Rolling Loud New York.

Whatever else happens with the Memphis Grizzlies this year, they’ve started off their season with a big win, and GloRilla is already proving herself to be the people’s champ of 2022.

ASAP Rocky Addresses His Short Rolling Loud New York Set: ‘I Am So Hurt Right Now’

A$AP Rocky teased that Rolling Loud in New York City’s Citi Field on Saturday night (September 24) would be “his last show until the album.” Turns out, Rocky’s fans will only have 30 minutes to tide them over. The Harlem-bred rapper expressed disappointment over his short set that saw him bring out Glorilla and French Montana.

“I am so hurt right now!” Rocky wrote in a note posted to Twitter on Sunday afternoon (September 25). “Last night was supposed to be a turning point in my live shows from the old to new! I will take full responsibility for the circumstances of what led to last nights show being everything it was and everything it wasn’t.”

The 33-year-old continued: “I also want to acknowledge that even tho I prepared the best show for my fans, detail for detail , over the course of MONTHS… I was unfortunately not able to bring my vision to fruition and Im hurt about that and I want to apologize to all of my fans and continued supporters, and thank y’all for showing up for me regardless!! A$AP4EVA.”

According to TMZ, Rocky was supposed to begin his set at 8:55 p.m. local time “but didn’t go on until a good 45 minutes later,” and the set was cut short by Rolling Loud organizers “because of a noise ordinance.”

Rocky took the stage with “Grim Freestyle” followed by “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2.” Midway through, he performed “Sights,” his new collaborative single with Playboi Carti, for the first time. Then, Glorilla joined for a rendition of her breakthrough hit “FNF (Let’s Go),” and Rocky closed out the abbreviated set alongside French Montana for “Mopstick.”

Throughout, Rocky spent time between songs calling for fans to “open that b*tch” for mosh pits, which resulted in the meme treatment. Tyler, the Creator went as far as switching his Instagram profile picture to the circulating photo of a struggling Rocky in the subpar pit.

Rocky didn’t have to endure the internet’s wrath for too long, though. Shortly after posting his apology, Rihanna confirmed she is the halftime performer for Super Bowl LVII on February 12, 2023. The couple welcomed their first child earlier this year.

Glorilla Donates $25K To Her Former High School: ‘I Decided To Be A Blessing’

Glorilla is generating major buzz today (September 23) for “Tomorrow 2,” her remix track with Cardi B that had been teased since Wednesday. “Poppin’ sh*t, you would think I went to school for chiropractin’,” the CMG signee raps on the first verse. Glorilla returned to her actual former high school on Thursday (September 22) and she didn’t show up empty-handed.

“God has been so good to me,” Glorilla captioned an Instagram video showing her unveiling a check for $25,000 for Martin Luther King College Preparatory High School. “Blessing me back to back so I decided to be a blessing to the students from my alma mater Mlk preparatory high school in Memphis, TN. FRAYSER BABY 4L.”

According to Billboard, the funds will be dedicated to the fine arts program, and Glorilla treated the excited students to a performance of her breakthrough single “F.N.F.”

Glorilla was signed to CMG Records by Yo Gotti in July after the success of “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)” with Hitkidd. “Tomorrow” arrived in mid-July as part of CMG’s compilation project Gangsta Art. Glorilla’s original single blew up to the tune of over 11 million YouTube views and 2.6 Spotify streams. The Cardi-assisted “Tomorrow 2” figures to cast an even wider net of influence.

Glorilla’s philanthropic trip back home comes just over a week after Cardi visited her former middle school and donated $100,000 toward arts education and after-school programs.

GloRilla and Cardi B Team for New Banger "Tomorrow 2"

GloRilla is on fire. With “FNF” still going crazy after being one of the songs of the summer, the CMG signee has teamed with Cardi B for a new banger, “Tomorrow 2.”

The new single comes with a video, bringing GloRilla to Cardi B’s home of the Bronx for crashing subways, the streets, and more. When it comes to music, the best way to describe it is a float. Both women hit the track and go off.

Cardi B Joins Glorilla On The Boastful Bar Fest ‘Tomorrow 2’

Cardi B gave GloRilla her biggest music moment yet by joining her on the remix to “Tomorrow,” from CMG’s compilation album Gangsta Art, titled “Tomorrow 2.” The two rappers are very dismissive of their haters on this record, but make plenty of time to brag about all of their high qualities.

GloRilla opens the record with the lines “Poppin’ sh*t, you would think I went to school for chiropractor / Lookin’ good as hell today, just sent my n**** five attachments / Why would you confront me about a n****? Man, you b*tches backwards / They come at me ’bout n****s I don’t even find attractive.”

Cardi jumps in later with fury, spitting “Ridin’ with my twin and nem, and we all on / She say she my opp but I don’t know her, had to look her up / I know that I’m rich but I can’t help it, b*tch, I’m hood as fuck / I’ve been on these b*tches necks so long, sometimes my foot get stuck.”

“Tomorrow 2,” announced Wednesday (September 21) follows a string of successes for GloRilla. The rapper signed with CMG after the success of her summer smash “FNF” with Hitkidd, which later received a remix featuring Latto and JT, one-half of the City Girls.

Cardi B has had an active 2022, with her most recent offering coming in the form of “Hot Sh*t” with Kanye West and Lil Durk. The Bronx artist appeared on B-Lovee’s “Shake It” alongside Dougie B and Bory300, as well as the extended version of Summer Walker’s “No Love” alongside SZA. Her feature run dates back to around her smash single “Up” in 2021, following that up with Migos’s “Type Sh*t,” Normani’s “Wild Side,” and Lizzo’s “Rumors.”
