The Houston-based rapper, known for 2005 hits “Still Tippin” and “Back Then,” heard Lamar Jackson shouted him out in a press conference earlier this week and shared a new song “Stay on the Grind” that could get the team through the playoff games.
“Tell coach I got em,” Jones tweeted.

During a press conference Tuesday, a USA Today reporter named Mike Jones was trying to ask Jackson a question, but when the Ravens quarterback heard his name, he chuckled and said, “Mike Jones! Mike Jones! That’s Lit!”
He was referring to the rapper who has a hook in his songs that goes, “Who? Mike Jones.”
Coach Harbaugh admitted the players talk about Jones. But he didn’t know who he was. “I gotta get a Mike Jones album or something. I gotta see what this guy Mike Jones is about,” Harbaugh said. “He seems like he’s popular.”
