We came across this image of what seems to be the album cover of Chick’s album… more specifically, a rap album. A little history on this album. This ‘album’ (if you want to call it that) was released in 2004, along with the book of his memoirs. This isn’t an album where he would take the mic and sing or rap, but instead would take the mic and call the Laker games.
This CD is full of the phrases he would use when he called the games, labeled “Chickisms”. For those that don’t know what I’m talking about, take this as an example “This game’s in the refrigerator: the door is closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter’s getting hard, and the Jell-O’s jigglin’!” which means the game’s outcome is set (for those that don’t understand the lingo).
However, there is a song on the CD, titled ‘Chick Hearn Rap-Around’. It featured the Chickisms mixed together to make a rap song, which (if you listened to Chick broadcast Laker games) isn’t such a bad song even though it doesn’t have him say any words directly for the song.
