The Kansas City Royals’ Competition To Drop Fetty Wap References In Post-Game Interviews Is Fantastic

by 3 years ago

“1738! I’m like ‘hey, what’s up, hello?’ Seen yo’ pretty ass soon as you came in that door…”

You already know those are the words famed rap poet Fetty Wap uses to kick off what has become one of the biggest hits of the summer, “Trap Queen.” The “1738” is a reference to Rémy Martin’s 1738 Royal Accord cognac, and it seems fair to infer Fetty and his circle – the Remy Boyz – probably down the spirit often as they want.

Well now, it looks the Kansas City Royals are getting in on repping the Remy Boyz, too. As if outfielder Lorenzo Cain using “Trap Queen” for his walk-up music isn’t enough, it not seems the entire Royals clubhouse are fans of Fetty Wap.

Andy McCullough, a Royals beat writer for the Kansas City Star, uncovered the team’s game of dropping Fetty’s “1738” references in to interviews of late.

This has to be up there with the “right meow” gimmicks we’ve seen the Nationals clubhouse. If only there was some video, because there’s no doubt in my mind watching the Royals stifle middle-aged reporters who have NO IDEA what they’re talking about would be hilarious.

For the record, once Andy McCullough became privy to the reference, of course he was a fan.
