(Birmingham, AL) The video by Ole Miss students Blake Pruett and Patrick Haadsma, better known as the rap duo “King Kobraz”, is the biggest thing to hit the Oxford campus in years.
It pays tribute to Pine Belt native Dante Moncrief, the Sophomore who’s become the breakout star of a team, but whom most had doubts about in the early season.
”Dante Moncrief has been one of those guys that had come on the scene and been of the stars of this young football team,” said Ole Miss Student Media reporter Stephen Quinn who has followed Moncrief since he came to campus.
It's no secret at Vaught-Hemmingway Stadium that the term “Feed Moncrief” refers to the fact that when he gets the ball, he scores.
”In most games, when he does well, we do well as a football team”.
In fact, in the Rebels’ game against Mississippi State, Moncrief scored three touchdowns.
”During the last game, the ‘egg bowl’, it started playing on the Jumbotron and everyone really got into the spirit of it. You could hear the fans chanting ‘feed moncrief."
Now, there are t-shirts, and signs, and even a new, fancier video.
And as the Rebels head into the Compass Bowl in Birmingham this weekend, the King Kobraz’ video has become the whole school’s rallying cry.
”The Thursday of finals week, they had a lot of students help participate in a new making of that video and it’s really the anthem going into this game in Birmingham”.
Let’s hope Dante Moncrief has a big appetite, for winning.
