"Blow the Whistle"

"Blow the Whistle" is the first single from Oakland rapper Too $hort's 16th album Blow the Whistle. It is produced by Lil' Jon. The song features a refrain of the words "blow the whistle," followed by a series of whistle blasts.

During the 2008 NBA Playoff series between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Washington Wizards, Jay-Z made a freestyle to this called "Playoff",[1] responding to negative comments by DeShawn Stevenson on behalf of LeBron James.[2]
