‘Giants on 3′: New York Super Bowl Champs Tease Legendary New Rap Track
Eli Manning won two Super Bowls in his career, one of which was won with center Shaun O'Hara. That duo created numerous memories on the field for the New York Giants, and somehow, their post-playing careers are proving to be more entertaining.
Simply put, Eli Manning is everywhere. You can see him on the Manningcast on ESPN2, you can see him going undercover pranking college football players, and you can see him on Eli's Extras across all of the Giants' media platforms.
It was on Eli's Extras that he and Shaun O'Hara tried their hand at a whole new career...being professional hip-hop artists?

I found this story by seeing one of the best screenshotted photos I've ever seen: Eli Manning in a yellow bucket hat.
Naturally, I had to find more, so I began to do some sleuthing on Twitter and online. Eventually, I came to an article from Outkick, that detailed Eli Manning and Shaun O'Hara's recent dabbling in the hip-hop game.
The New York Giants were involved in the promotion of this collaboration, and tweeted this:
So, here's what we can find for the backstory of this collaboration. The artist who was working with Eli and Shaun here is Fivio Foreign. He's a New York City-based rap artist, and a huge fan of the New York Giants. He's even been spotted on the sidelines, cutting it up with Saquon Barkley.
Fivio was set to release a new track, titled "1 on 3", when he and the Giants decided to collaborate on a remix. Enter: Eli Manning and Shaun O'Hara, and the hijinks that followed.
For reference, here is the original song from Fivio Foreign:
Meanwhile, here is what the New York Giants posted about the remix, because I can't embed the video.
Everything about this remix is amazing, and honestly, I give Manning and O'Hara a lot of credit for the work that they've done with the team recently. The Giants are off to a hot start, but they don't have a lot of marketable star power on their roster.
Despite being retired, Eli and Shaun are both beloved for their performances on Super Bowl-winning Giants' teams, and they've done tremendous work to build the brand of the New York Giants for this generation of football fans.
That all being said...we'd recommend neither of them quit their day jobs.
