Fashawn’s ‘One More Try’ … the greatest Fresnocentric song ever?

I’m probably just a prisoner of the moment on this one, but current Fresno rap king Fashawn just dropped a new hometown anthem featuring Omar Aura and did something so brilliant I don’t know why it hadn’t been done before.

He rapped over Timmy T’s 1991 chart-topper “One More Try,” creating a song that overdoses on Fresnawesomeness. I’m not going to lie, I totally marked out when the beat came in. Even the artwork for “One More Try” is great. Listen to or download the song below. (Warning: NSFW language)

Well done, Fash, well done.

Fashawn is great here as always. But my favorite Fresno song will always be “Herndon and 99″ by Mr. Ashod Simonian and Panty Lions.

Mike Oz says:

If there is no Timmy T reference, I rest my case!

But seriously, you should give me that song.
