Martin (Marty) Santiago of the award-winning duo Social Club Misfits exclusively penned the song "Psalm 144-Marty" for MMA fighter turned pro boxer Vitor Belfort and the boxing match against Belfort and Evander Holyfield. Held last weekend in Hollywood, Florida, Santiago performed the song live, walking with Belfort during his entry into the ring.
“Vitor called me and asked me to create an intro anthem for his match with Evander Holyfield," Santiago shared. "When I sent (him) the song, he loved it so much he asked me to walk out with him. I was able to produce this with 703izzy; Datin, who helped me write a song based on Psalm 144; and Luis Cancion, who mixed and mastered the song in one day.”
"Goliath lost, David made his giants fall 'cause he relied on God, that's how I defy the odds / I am charged because I'm powered by a higher source, Ima march into battle fearlessly and Ima brawl / Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle / He anoints my head with fresh oil and my cup shall overflow" – lyrics from "Psalm 144-Marty."
A press release stated, “Jam-packed with riveting beats, compelling lyrics and loads of energy, south Florida hip-hop duo Social Club Misfits is the result of two distinctive personalities meshing together to create an invigorating sound. Comprised of Santiago and Fernando Miranda (Fern), the self-monikered ‘Misfits’ are disruptors in every sense, challenging norms and bringing other misfits along for the ride.”
With a host of projects and EPs under their belt, including the Billboard-charting full-lengths “Feared By Hell,” “MOOD//DOOM,” “INTO THE NIGHT” and “The Misadventures,” the GMA Dove Award-winning rappers have “made a sport of pushing boundaries and redefining the possibilities of what faith-based music can accomplish on their way to amassing more than 264 million global career streams. From headlining sold-out tours across the country to spawning imitators the world over, it's clear the duo has struck a chord with listeners from all walks of life.”
