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.”
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.
For any of you who have played poker non-stop through the course of the night and into the wee hours of the morning, this news flash from our favorite poker news source, “PokerNews” itself, should bring a smile unto your weary, tired, sleepy grinder brains.
Chad Holloway, a 2013 World Series of Poker Bracelet winner, who also happens to be the Managing Editor of PokerNews, has taken his passion for poker, his passion for zombies and his passion for comic books and created the ultimate Zombie Poker Adventure: The World Series of Zombies (WSOZ). In this bizarre world of Holloway’s, he features some of poker’s greatest names including Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Vanessa Selbst, Antonio Esfandiari, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, and Phil Laak.
Personally, I think this is bound to become a classic collectors’ item and I will be picking up our copy at the Rio in Vegas very soon. In the meantime, for all the details just go to the PokerNews website and check it out for yourselves.
Next time you’re grinding at the tables all night remember; there are Poker Zombies walking amongst you.
