Danny Garcia Raps, Walks Around Philly, Buys Jewelry and Hats (Video)

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

You may know that Danny "Swift" Garcia boxes for a living, and that the 23-year-old junior welterweight scored the biggest win of his young and promising career on October 15 when he defeated Kendall Holt in Los Angeles, on the Hopkins vs Dawson undercard.

But you may not know that he also raps. Here's the video for "I Go In," featuring Main Attraction and JohnniiBoii.

As for the song, it's, uh, better than Jared Shaw, I suppose. Not my brand of cola when it comes to hip-hop, I'll put it that way. It's not embarrassing or anything. It's not Dee Dee Ramone.

I think my favorite part of the video is when they go buy a bunch of hats. After buying expensive jewelry, which is always a good thing for a young boxer to do in today's economy, Danny and his crew head to an athletic apparel store to buy who knows HOW many hats featuring the logos of teams they don't even like. Preferably, these logos will have not been in use since Garcia was born in 1988, or if they were, they stopped being used before he reached double digits.

I wish we'd go back to when people only wore sports apparel for teams they liked. But we won't. It's like Target selling Rolling Stones fake concert shirts next to Office Space and candy logo t-shirts. You're bound to get a bunch of little dorks who haven't even heard Sticky Fingers walking around with a Stones shirt.
