"ESPN to use local group's song on NFL Countdown"

The new football song by local group Tyte Wurk is catching on faster than numbers adding up on local scoreboards on Friday nights.

The song "What Is It?" (The football song), as it’s being called, has been tailored for each school, presented by courtesy of Superkala Records in Enterprise and the group.

Tyte Wurk (Tight Work), with members Kosha aka Kelvin Seldon and Dirty Black aka Christopher Johnson, is a group that subscribes to no rules and has an uninhibited sound of rhyme, emotion and impulse that comes through from the first beat of the new song.

Students, faculty members and coaches are praising the song that speaks of football and the season filled with hard work and "bringing it back to the house."

"Who’s House?" explodes the hip-hop version and the reply is credited to the different school mascots; Wildcats, Tigers, Gamecocks, Rebels, etc.

The sports channel, ESPN, also became interested in the song and will use the lyrics and customize the song for the ESPN NFL Countdown, beginning Thursday, Sept. 8.

Superkala Records Vice President Trey Wilson said the song can be heard before the football game and it will be tailored to use for ESPN.

"We sent them both versions of the song, one in hip-hop and one in a rock version," Wilson said. "They chose the rock version to use and they’ll let us know the storyline or angle they want us to send them. We record everything here at our production company at Superkala."

Wilson said most of the general public didn’t know about the quality sound Superkala offers and how the facilities could produce a quality record.

"Anyone can call us and get a CD recorded. We’ve got some really good studio equipment and we do all the writing and production here for many groups," Wilson said, "and we’re proud of the fact that Kosha and Dirty Black has produced a national song from Superkala."

The writing and musical talents of the group are exceptional and according to Wilson, Troy University Trojans are using the song when the team runs out on the field and when the Trojans score a touchdown.

Kosha, experiencing the rhythms of music at a young age in Georgia, quickly learned about life, music and surviving through hard times. His seven older siblings had a make-shift studio in the back of an old funeral home where locals would record and from this, Kosha developed into a proven professional engineer. A veteran of the United States Army, Kosha has become well versed in all aspects of the music industry from writing to production.

Christopher or Dirty Black hails from Panama City, Fla., and has an uncanny mixture of talent, from writing captivating lyrics to delivering speed and clarity to his verses. Tragedy often breeds triumph and in Dirty Black’s case, the loss of his brother has become his inspiration. Dirty Black’s brother was shot and killed before he had a chance to become successful with a basketball scholarship.

Both Kosha and Dirty Black are now residents of Enterprise working with Superkala Records on finishing an album.

"We’ve got the album finished and we’ve done it all in Enterprise," Kosha said. "We hope to have a couple of our songs out on radio and then the CD will come out soon."
