A rarity for Steelers faithful, going all-in to support Le’Veon Bell in his negotiations

Few Steelers fans stand behind Le’Veon Bell in his quest to be paid appropriately...so I do so in rap form.

NFL: AFC Divisional Playoff-Jacksonville at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Rap Beef: Blak Mamba’s Rap Response to Defeo: For Who the Bell Tolls!

The Steelers Media and fans seem to celebrate loudest when a Steelers star takes a pay cut, see Jerome Bettis, Hines Ward, etc. Conversely, they moan and groan when a star asks for the money he’s worked diligently for.

Le’Veon Bell is that unique back. He’s in the words of the late Notorious BIG, “better than your average,” and he has the stats and stripes to back it up! As the Steelers try to “Kurt Cousins” Le’Veon Bell with repeated franchise tag tenders, he has reportedly lowered his demands to where he and the team are virtually several hundred thousand dollars a year and a solid guaranteed amount of money away from a deal. This is extremely close in the world of long-term, multi-million-dollar NFL contracts.

Some hot-take novice on NFL Network has inflated Bell’s demand for shock value. Media outside of the Burgh’ always try to throw salt in the game. In the words of Doug E. Fresh, “people want us to break up be we cannot….” They are tired of the Steelers’ perennial success and dominance through the 50+ years of the Super Bowl era.

You don’t pay the same for a running back in the Toyota Camry class that you would for a running back in the Range Rover class, no less for a hybrid Rover. Le’Veon Bell is rugged, and sleek with smooth lines. He has pioneered his own unique and effective running style that Pro, college, and High school stars are starting to mimic.

Trust me, he’s no Camry.

So in the words of Deion Sanders, “PAY THE MAN!”

I’m confident that Bell will be a Steeler and ‘Killer B’ for his entire career. As Doug E. Fresh asked ”You know why, ask me why, we’re on a mission!” All the the ways to Seven, Seven-Heaven! (from Doug E. Fresh’s “All the Way to Heaven”)

I’m going to lower my skill level to elementary and retort my colleague, Mr. Tony Defeo’s Mother Goose, Dr. Seuss rhymes line for line.

Le’Veon is the name

49.5 % of offensive touches my game

My legs 582 carries over the last two

Somebody say Jello? Fool they’re super glue

Offseason workouts skipped

Better add the other killer B’s to that list

Along with Brady, Gronk, Donald. Martin and Julio

Who cares if I put in a little work in the studio

The fans are trippin’

After I’ve played hero, trying to paint me as the villain

Their opinion of me is jive

I said I’d go as low as 14.5

We have salary cap gods

make the signing bonus large, the work aint’ hard

I’m a target for sure

If you asked to get paid fans are looking at the front door

I know its about the bowl, that’s why I came back from two knees

You couldn’t measure my heart with right angles at 90 degrees

You’re right I’m no fool

If I had a major injury we know what the org. would do

Le’Veon is the name

49.5 % of offensive touches my game

Along with Brady, Gronk, Donald. Martin and Julio

Who cares if I put in a little work in the studio

Football is tough and what have you?

I’m raising multi-tasking backs value

I’ve earned my payday

Fans and Defeo are nuttier than a Payday!

Mayday, Mayday

Better sign me with no more delay!

Opposing coaches would sell the firstborn for ‘The Juice”

Their Defenses I terrorize, their OC’s I seduce

This should be worked out Stet

Or next offseason y’all will truly regret!

Dude on NFL Network talking 17

He’s in the B.C. section of my twitter feed!

I’m born to run, my wheels don’t fall off!

With that said (or, rather, rapped; Anthony Defeo step your weak, prehistoric rap game up: Take that, take that, take that!
