Bailey Talks ‘Who’s Got it Better’

Posted by Taylor Price on January 6, 2012 – 12:15 PM

San Francisco rap artist Bailey has been a 49ers fan his entire life and has celebrated the team’s success in 2011 by recording a song that highlights the team’s key players and recent achievements.

Titled, “Who’s Got It Better,” Bailey’s 49ers anthem has been viewed just under 100,000 times in the short time since it appeared online.

With so much fanfare for his song, one which samples Jim Harbaugh’s postgame rallying cry, Bailey will perform his song pregame before the 49ers host a Divisional Playoff game at Candlestick Park on Saturday, Jan. 14.

49ers.com spoke recently with the proud 49ers fan to get the back story behind the song, video and artist.

Q: What inspired you to write the song?
A: I did the song “Black and Orange” for the Giants in 2010 when they won the World Series and now I feel like that’s my niche. That song kind of blew up and got me a lot of attention, so when the 49ers started doing real well a lot of people started hitting me, like, “Bailey, the team is doing good you need to do another one.” I just like stuff to come to me. But then one of my friends sent me a link to a video of one of the sayings that Coach Harbaugh does after the game. I saw it and felt it then talked to my producer and he put some horns and strings in there with the kick and next thing you know – that was it. I just added some passionate lyrics about the Niners and the city where I’m from.

Q: What is your background with the team and how have the 49ers been a part of your life?
A: I was born in San Francisco and raised in the Fillmore district all throughout the 80s. I’m an 80s baby so I saw that 49ers dynasty do their thing and I’ve been going to tailgates since and making sure I’ve got my Niners attire. I represent my city because I’m an artist and that’s one thing you need to have is a home. You always have to represent where you’re from wherever you are. When you go to different states they’ve got to know where you’re from, so there’s no better way than to be recognized by the team, by the hat you wear or the jersey you’re wearing.

Q: What do you make of Coach Harbaugh’s saying – Who’s got it better than us?
A: I just took it as something to believe in yourself. The cards that you’re dealt – play ‘em. Play ‘em hard; play ‘em to the fullest; be thankful. If you do that, no one will have it better than you because you take it into your own hands. That’s what I took from the coach and we’re all standing by it. Who’s got it better than us? Nobody. Work with what you got. All you need is patience and intense dedication, which is also the name of my record label. It’s all coming full-circle; it’s feeling right.

Q: Do you have a favorite lyric or line in the song?
A: I really like the, “Forever Faithful Frank Gore” line. When I say that, I’m just talking about how he stuck with it and now he’s got the most rushing yards in San Francisco 49ers history. Plus, I have another 49ers Faithful line in there and a couple shoutouts to sections in the city. It’s just a hot song. It hits close to home.

Q: Are you getting a lot of love around the city because of the song?
A:  I’m getting a lot of love from the tailgaters to other artists to people who said they don’t really like rap music but this song does something for them. Some people are even getting misty-eyed because it’s hitting home and restoring the feeling back. It’s unbelievable, really. I’m still in shock of all the views. Of course, there’s still a little hatred from other people who don’t want to see us have success. But I’m just rolling with the punches and I’m doing what I’m doing. I haven’t performed it anywhere yet but I talked to some players after the Steelers game and they told me they’ve been listening to it in practice and I told them I love what they’ve been doing. The feedback’s been good.

Q: How does it feel to be associated with the 49ers resurgence this year?
A: I truly appreciate it. Truly, truly. I want the fans to know that I won’t let them down creatively as far as representing the city. I’m just glad that I got the point across for the fans and they respect it and love what I did. Music is my life. I do nothing else so I feel like I’m a worthy candidate from that standpoint. I’m eager, thankful and ready to keep working. I’d also like to thank Matt Straus and Vinnie Minton for helping me with the video.

    this song is a good way to pump up the 9ers at homefield.great song bailey i don’t how you did it but its great thank you for the song.also i watched the saints and the lions the saints won but if you look at the game alot of missed tackles by the lions thay couldn’t stop the run they missed 2 or 3 chances to intercept the ball and they did’nt 49ers defence is nothing like the lions dfence.i think it’s going to be a good game and 49ers will win.alex smith i beleve in you you can do it just go out there humble and see as a regular season game.
