Tom Brady's Super Bowl LV Victory Playlist Is Kinda Lit
Tom Brady made history Sunday when he won Super Bowl LV, his seventh title, which is more than any single franchise in the NFL. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 in a game where Brady threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns.
On his Instagram the day after the momentous victory, Brady posted a series of stories highlighting his teammates and celebrating his own accomplishments. The music he chose to accompany the posts is surprisingly very good, with a variety of classic hip-hop, a lil punk rock and some new bangers that we are impressed by.
See Tom Brady's victory playlist below:
50 Cent - Straight to the Bank
Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski set the record for most playoff touchdowns by a quarterback-wide receiver duo when they connected on an eight-yard score in the first quarter and again in the end zone in the second quarter. Brady has now thrown a total of 14 playoff TDs to Gronk, who has a nice round total of 100 career touchdowns. Brady used 50 Cent's "Curtis" cut "Straight to the Bank" to honor how he and his former New England Patriots teammate are still cashing out.
Joyner Lucas - Revenge
Tom Brady celebrates running back Leonard Fournette with Joyner Lucas' "Revenge." Fournette had a stellar game in Super Bowl LV, finishing with 16 carries for 89 yards and a touchdown. The song is probably is a nod to the fact that the Chiefs beat the Bucs in the regular season, but Tampa Bay got sweet revenge when it mattered. "Revenge" is a cut off Lucas' 2020 album "ADHD" and not one of the popular singles, so this is fairly impressive that Brady, not exactly known as a rap head, would select this.
T.I. - Bring Em Out
Tom Brady shared an image of his offense in the huddle at midfield, standing on the Lombardi Trophy as a prophecy of when they'd hoist the Lombardi Trophy in victory with T.I.'s classic "Bring Em Out." He shouts out center Ryan Jensen, guard Ali Marpet, tackle Donovan Smith, running back Ronald Jones II and tight end Cameron Brate.
Sarah McLachlan - Angel
Tom Brady pokes a lil jab at fellow quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who had a less-than-epic outing. He uses the emotive "Angel" from Sarah McLachlan to mourn his disciple's woes. He also shouts out the defense, tagging William Gholston, Devin White and Mike Edwards for their efforts holding Mahomes to 270 yards, no touchdowns and intercepting him twice.
P,O.D. - Boom
Tom Brady goes a bit rocker here, posting P.O.D.'s "Boom" to applaud his defense some more. Ndamukong Suh got his first Super Bowl ring with the victory. This was his eleventh year in the league where he's been to five Pro Bowls after a stellar college career as a Nebraska Cornhusker.
Wale - Slight Work ft. Big Sean
Tom Brady salutes linebacker Shaquil Barrett with Wale's "Slight Work" featuring Big Sean off the "Ambition" album. Barrett had one of the Bucs three sacks in Super Bowl LV, living up to his nickname Sack Barrett.
AB - Whole Lotta Money
After quite a tumultuous career, Antonio Brown is a Super Bowl champion. And the prolific wide receiver contributed to the win with five receptions for 22 yards and a touchdown. AB has dabbled with a rap career, especially when he was bouncing around the league last year before landing with the Bucs in October. Brady uses his single "Whole Lotta Money" in his appreciation post. We're glad that AB did not give up on football because rap was not exactly his God-given talent. Although "Whole Lotta Money" is kinda catchy..
Nelly - Country Grammar
Tom Brady shouts out linebacker Devin White using Nelly's "Country Grammar." He references Denver Broncos' tight end Shannon Sharpe's joke of calling the president to send in help for the opposing team (who happened to be a pre-Brady Patriots) who was being blown out.
Young Money - Trophies (ft. Drake)
Drake's "Trophies" is actually one of the best sports anthems out there. It's not so much a celebration of awards, but an appreciation of teamwork. Brady uses it swimingly here with another defense appreciation post, shouting out Edwards, safety Antoine Winfield Jr., White again, cornerback Carlton Davis and linebacker Lavonte David.
Blink-182 - What's My Age Again?
At 43 years old, Tom Brady defies all science as the leading quarterback in the NFL. He's spent 21 years in the league. Patrick Mahomes was in elementary school when Brady won his first Super Bowl with the New England Patriots. While the young gun has a bright future, it's still the Tom Brady Era. And he's coming back for more. So, as Blink-182 asks in their classic song, Brady asks "What's My Age Again?"
The Game - Hate It or Love It (ft. 50 Cent)
Tom Brady goes a lil West Coast, celebrating the Super Bowl LV win with White holding up the team's Microsoft tablet with a simple written message, "World Champs." And he perfectly utilizes the timeless cut from The Game and 50 Cent "Hate It or Love It" as Brady was probably rapping to himself, "the underdog's on top, so Ima keep shining til my heartbeat stops. Go 'head and envy me, I'm the NFL's MVP and I ain't goin nowhere so you can get to know me."
50 Cent - Many Men
It's only right that Tom Brady finished his Super Bowl LV celebration with 50 Cent's prolific hit "Many Men." "Get Rich or Die Tryin" just celebrated its 18th anniversary and this song has been everywhere as Pop Smoke and 21 Savage repurposed it so that 50's influence carries onto the next generation. While we highly doubt anyone has ever put a hit on the 7-time champion, we appreciate his dominance much like the rap mogul's.
