Have We Talked About Erik Komatsu's Sick Beats Yet?

Look, St. Louis Cardinals fans. There's no way around it. We need to talk about Erik Komatsu's sick beats.

The Cardinals' Rule 5 selection—suddenly likely to make the 25-man roster—isn't just a lightning-fast center field prospect they swiped for free and the proprietor of the hashtag #KomoThoughts, he's also an up-and-coming hip hop producer named Komo Beatz who sells and licenses tracks on his website. You can lease them at very affordable rates, whether you're looking for a Drake type, a West Coast type, a Jeezy-type-banger, or even an introspective piano-based jam with Komo Beatz rapping the hook already*. Nearly all of them feature a sample of somebody saying "Comin' at you with that fire." You're going to want to listen to nearly all of them.

Please, enjoy these Komo Beatz while browsing SB Nation St. Louis

This is perhaps the best thing about the year 2012: Twitter accounts have turned all minor-to-moderate celebrities into real human beings with real interests and hobbies. And real side-gigs as Komo Beatz. I love baseball.

*I've sweated all my life / grindin' every day, I don't really need to talk / cuz they see the way I play. I wear my pockets real fat / like they're really out of shape, and you know I'm 'bout to shine / cuz I'm runnin' out of shade.
