Sir Roc 216 added the WALK’EM LIKE A DAWG chant to form what has become a widely celebrated anthem in Cleveland, Ohio.
October 20, 2021 —
OG Shanksta and Sir Roc 216, are calling on the Executives at Cleveland Browns to make their new song WALK’EM LIKE A DAWG the official anthem of the Cleveland Browns Football team.
The two artists who are also the creators of the country/rap line dance and song The Barnyard Shuffle decided to make a Cleveland Browns anthem using their previously released song titled Down the Way.
OG Shanksta, a local rapper/comedian, raised in Cleveland's Central neighborhood called DTW (Down The Way) by residents, says he changed the lyrics to their original song while Sir Roc 216 added the WALK’EM LIKE A DAWG chant to form what has become a widely celebrated anthem in Cleveland, Ohio.
According to the artists, the song was titled WALK’EM LIKE A DAWG to reflect the leadership attributes of the Cleveland Browns who always have their heads held high in superiority over their opponents, regardless of the scoreline.
In the past, famous rappers such as Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly have also released hype tracks for the Cleveland Browns, with Kelly going further to perform at the FirstEnergy Stadium. And after the death of Mac Miller, the team's wide receiver Jarvis Landry paid tribute to the Cleveland-born star by honoring him on his cleats in their week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers back in 2020.
For OG Shanksta and Sir Roc 216, WALK’EM LIKE A DAWG has surprisingly turned into a fan favorite. Describing themselves as die-hard fans of the Browns, they believe the wide reception of the track shows how much energy and momentum the song will give the team if it is played before every game.
"Before we knew it people were chanting Walk' EM Like A Dawg everywhere. Browns fans started asking for t-shirts, hats, etc... so with this demand, we launched our merch store for our newfound fans we call "DAWG WALKERS". Since then we have consistently sold-out merchandise. This song will inspire the Browns to win enough games to make the playoffs every year. We want this song to be played in the locker room before the games and at halftime to keep the team and fans pumped up. The fans are demanding it, and the Cleveland Browns can make it official.”
Both artists have performed the anthem for fans at different events, including tailgate parties, sports bars, and most recently, the Walk’EM like A DAWG podcast.
And on the 31st of October, OG Shanksta and Sir Roc 216 will perform WALK’EM LIKE A DAWG live, joined by the former Cleveland Browns and Super Bowl champion Gregg Pruitt, at the Muni Lot before the Browns vs Steelers game, regardless of what the weather might be.
