“I tend to see these athletes as our modern day gladiators,” Lemon said. He delivered the anthemic poem The Akronite before an audience of 2,000+ Akron locals and said of the release, “It’s a wonderful design and really engages the truth of immersive storytelling by giving back to the communities we often overlook with a product and an even bigger human experience to match.”
All hail King James / All hail to the Akronite / All hail to the leader who / Stood up to his role / Who bounced back / with his state / his mind / his body and His Rubber City Soul.
