The Timberwolves' home opener against the Memphis Grizzlies was a strong start to their season, and it arrived with the perfect soundtrack. Local legends Muja Messiah and Big Zach honored late Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders with "#4FLIP," a new song that should hit quite a few nostalgia buttons for longtime Wolves fans.

With Big Zach's verse primarily focused on his fandom for the franchise and Muja's capturing the experience of the present day Timberwolves experience, it's a strong reintroduction for the team, exemplifying what they mean to Minnesota basketball fans. Produced by Jake in the Box and with official DJ of the Timberwolves DJ Mad Mardigan on the cut with some very impressive turntablism, it's a sureshot special moment for Minnesota hip-hop fans this year.
