But not this trap-inspired ode to Air Force security forces airmen, which hit YouTube earlier this week. Tech. Sgt. Torrey Kilpatrick and Tech. Sgt. Darrin Tullis of F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming on Monday dropped “Get In Step,” three minutes and 30 seconds of clever rhymes about all the things Air Force base defenders do.
It’s catchy as hell. Kilpatrick and Tullis’ flow is impeccable, the track is well-produced, and the video is well-shot and edited by Senior Airman Jonathan Williams. Best of all, the video even has a cameo of a K-9 dog doing what he does best.
And unless we’re mistaken, this is the first song in hip hop history to include a shout-out to AFIs. Drop what you’re doing and check it out, and let us know what you think.
