We’ve written a few times about the cool connection that has formed between the Michigan State football team and Atlanta rapper Rich Homie Quan this season.

Quan’s hit song “Type of Way” became an anthem of sorts for the Spartans. The team dances to the song in the locker room after games and coach Mark Dantonio even gave Quan a shoutout in a postgame interview following the Big Ten championship game.

Now the two parties will finally (and officially) come together as Quan will fly to California to join the team for Wednesday’s Rose Bowl against Stanford.

Quan, who performed at a New Year’s Eve concert in Charlotte, N.C., Tuesday night, spoke to MLive.com about how excited he is to attend the game.

“For me to be on the field with Michigan State at the Rose Bowl, I’ll have butterflies,” he said. “I didn’t go to college, so this means a lot. I just want to shout out the whole Michigan State alumni, it’s so special to be a part of this movement.”

Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis is looking forward to meeting Quan.

“It will be great having the person that put that song together and created those special moments join us at the Rose Bowl to complete this season. We’re looking forward to it. A lot of people want to meet him,” Hollis said.

All-American cornerback Darqueze Dennard, a Georgia native, introduced the team to Quan’s music. After Quan saw Dantonio’s shoutout, he knew he had to be there for the Rose Bowl.

“When coach said that on national TV, I just said to myself, ‘I have to be there, man,’” Quan said.

The logistics of planning the trip took some work.

Several conversations took place to work out a plan: Hollis, Dantonio, former Spartans football player and Atlanta recording studio CEO/owner Curtis Daniel III, Michigan State associate athletic director Alan Haller and director of college advancement and performance camp/director Curtis Blackwell were all involved.

Quan, who will fly into Los Angeles before making the trip to Pasadena, said he identified with the team because they both started as underdogs before achieving success.

“You have to start from somewhere to make someone believe in you,” Quan said. “You got to think about when Michigan State wasn’t ranked. They weren’t No. 4 at the start of the season, but they started from somewhere, and that’s where the grind comes in. And you know it’s going to pay off. It’s like nobody believed in me, nobody believed in them, but we showed the world.”

It’s pretty awesome to see how Quan has connected with the Spartans and now there’s nothing I want to see more than Mark Dantonio dancing with Rich Homie Quan in the locker room after the game.
