Golden Nuggets: Marshawn Lynch Puts the DMC in Run-DMC

CalBearsOnline.com

As part of ESPN Magazine's Music Issue, Marshawn Lynch did his best Darryl McDaniels impression and talks about the importance of music in his gameday routine.

February 18th's edition of ESPN Magazine is the Music Issue. A couple prominent, Tedford-era superstars play big roles in the magazine. Marshawn Lynch teamed up with Trent Richardson and LaMarr Woodley to recreate the cover of Run DMC's "Ultimate Run DMC." Beast Mode does a pretty good Darryl McDaniels impression.

There's also a behind-the-scenes video.

ESPN asked Lynch a variety of questions about music. Marshawn became a little hesitant when talking about the name of his favorite Run-DMC song.

What's your favorite Run-DMC song?

Lynch: I don't think I'm allowed to say what my favorite song is. I don't think any of us are allowed to say it. We're restricted from saying it. We have a deal with Nike. Nah, man: "My Adidas."

Beast Mode went on to talk about the role of music during his pregame routine as well as a song he inspired.

What role does music play for you in sports?

Lynch: It plays a huge part. I listen to my music until the very last minute. I mean I'm walking out to the field with my headphones on before a game and I just leave them right by the door right before we're going out.

I have the luxury of getting to know an artist who has been out there putting together some songs for me that I got to play at the stadium. His name is Mistah F.A.B. So I mean the majority of the guys I listen to, mainstream people wouldn't know too much about that usually.

Doesn't Mistah F.A.B. have a song called "Marshawn Lynch"?

Lynch: It's actually a pretty good song, not just because it's about me. He got some lyrics on there that are pretty good.

What's your favorite lyric from the song?

Lynch: I can't say it.

Yes you can.

Lynch: [Yells] BEASTMODE, B----!

No one's interviews are more fun than Marshawn Lynch's.
