Tri-Guy-Jt. aka Jay Z

Greetings from the Hinterlands. Rap artists are social commentators. Some vulgar. Many not. Rap Artists keep the beat and proclaim verse about many things. Would JayZ rap about triathlon training??? Probably not. He's got Beyonce for goodness sakes.


So, I decided to pick up the slack. Don't thank me. Just imagine Jay Z or 50 Cent doing the verse.. Hey, it could be worse.






No Lie, I Tri
written by TriGuyJt

Good week in the gym and out,
a big reason to shout.
5 hours of heart rate sustaining,
triathlon specific training,
lifting weights, straining,
not once complaining,
Skipping rope, treadmill jogging
writing down miles and logging,
more items of which I'll be blogging
spilling my guts, bareing my soul,
my body a furnace, stoke it with coal.
Thinking of that day that will soon come
The day I will race, I will beat my own drum
Pump up my chest, ready my grit.
never ever stop fighting, there aint no quit.
But through the strong workouts, the sweat hitting the floor
the body craves goodies, Come on, give me more.
Hey,theres a donut, I'll take 2, make that 3".
my body won't listen to my shrieking plea.
No Lie, I Tri, I'll say no to the snacking,
I just need my bloggers backing!!!
Whattya think guys?? Platinum???? Guys?? Hello...

Rainmaker said...

That's pretty awesome! Now you just gotta get it recorded and put up in a little blogger video.

Come JT, you can have access to the production material. Give it TRI!!!

Give it TRI Production. I think it has a ring to it.

IronMatron said...

Oh, that's good.
I agree with Rainmaker, though. I want a video with sound. And you need to wear a tri-suit in it. Yahoo!

Brian said...

very funny. I read the rap and see your pic to the right of it in your Hawaiian shirt. Don't worry I have no rhythm either. I see my mother at weddings clapping off beat all the time. I guess I get it from her.

Matt Collister said...

I haven't been so moved by an athlete-turned-rapper since the '85 Chicago Bears.

Very clever.

triguyjt said...

brian--thanks... the guy in the hawaiian shirt with the woman is my body double.
lazy-- good title for the production company
ironmatron..me in a trisuit is not a pretty sight.
matt- thanks for calling me an athlete. you are soo kind. I remember that super bowl shuffle

Donald said...

Fantastic. You need to drop some f-bombs in there, though. And for the video, you need hot triathlete girls with big booties in there. Maybe put out a casting call or something.

Definetly American Idol material...

LIke the lyrics, espcially about the dounuts...

Definetly have to get a music video together and put it on "youtube".. You could be famous.

Josh said...

ha, great rap!!

Wes said...

Excellent... That's worth at least a double platinum donut!! :-)

Speed Racer said...

A few more curse words and something about bitches and guns and I think you've got a real hit! Move over, Eminem, there's a new white boy in the hood!

Eric said...

I got your back on this one JT. My mind is whirling with the video possibilities.

B Bop said...

That rap is hot, JT!!!!

Now, your enduring fans are waiting for the youtube video ;-)

TriBoomer said...

Yo yo! O.G. daddy JT is all up in the hizzy, y'allllllll!

Charlie said...

Kurt said...

Christine said...

"Got me patients with gunshot wounds, lacin up my shoes and ipod tunes...run, run away.." the end!
