Does the poker community need an up-to-date musical anthem? WSOP 2017 bracelet winner and hip-hop aficionado, Rulah Divine, thinks so. As he told Chad Holloway of pokernews.com:
“I drew inspiration for this song through all my experience and adventures in poker. Nobody has really created a great poker song since Kenny (Rogers) dropped ‘The Gambler’ all those years ago (except of course, for the song we wrote and produced for the Texas Poker Store: “I May Be Bluffin”.) As a poker community we needed an anthem and I was more than happy to fulfill this need. Poker and hip-hop music are my two biggest passions and it was great to be able to merge them both together.”
Check out “Eye of the Grinder.”
The Albuquerque-born Divine has been grinding in both hip-hop and poker for most of his life. After his 2017 win, he turned his focus to creating a modern anthem for the poker playing community. Now his plan is to coordinate with the WSOP and the Rio to obtain the perfect shots for his planned “Eye of the Grinder” music video.
As Divine explained, “Although I have won a WSOP bracelet I feel like this is my biggest contribution to the poker community and I do hope the players love it.”
So next time you’re in a poker game think about our song, “I May Be Bluffin” before you shove your chips in.
