Today our Bryce Harper trilogy ends with the last song that mentions Bryce Harper. This one really isn’t about him, but it in he does get a mention from his pal, Wale.

According to MLB’s Cut 4, Bryce started using Wale’s music as his walk-up songs and later asked Wale to mention him in his next project. The result was Wale’s 2012 song, “Change Up” (warning: explicit lyrics), which includes the line:


“Attire proper, Bryce Harper
though slightly darker”


The friendship continued, including an outing at Ben’s Chili Bowl in Washington, D.C., and Wale throwing out the first pitch at a Nats game in 2013:
