(warning: explicit content)


Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, April 3 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Ludacris: "I'm Just Here So I Won't Get Fined"

On his Facebook and Twitter accounts yesterday, Marshawn Lynch shared a sneak peak to a music video he recently wrapped up with Atlanta-based rapper Ludacris, whose new album *Ludaversal *features a song titled 'Beast Mode' that was influenced by the Seahawks running back.

"The same way he's plowing down people on the field, I'm plowing down people in the music industry and all these rappers," Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges told ESPN last week. "It's a song that has no hook, it's three minutes of just metaphors and just going in."

The short video preview shows Ludacris in a Beast Mode-branded sweatshirt fielding questions from the press in the same manner Lynch handled his media availability at Super Bowl XLIX. "I'm just here so I won't get fined," "I'm thankful," and "You know why I'm here" are Bridges' responses before the 'Beast Mode' beat drops and Lynch appears alongside Ludacris on screen.

You can listen to the Lynch-inspired track right here and the music video teaser is embedded for you above (warning: explicit content). Def Jam Recordings promises the full video is "coming soon."
