Last week we gave you a Fresno-ized version of a popular song and you guys totally WTF’d it. Now we have another Fresno-centric take off that needs your verdict.
This time it’s taking Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind” (as heard before Game 2 of the World Series) — and giving it a Fresno spin. The song is the work of Rich Nix and Koncrete Rose, and features a lot of hometown reference and shout outs. The Tower District line is probably my favorite.
Personally, if I’m picking, I prefer Planet Asia’s “Fresno State of Mind” (circa 2002). But WTF of FTW isn’t about my opinion. You guys need to decide whether this is a certified win or a Fresno Fail.
WTF = What the [Fudgesicle], a.k.a. “What are you thinking?”
FTW = For the Win, a.k.a. “That idea is a victory for people everywhere.”
