KANSAS CITY, Mo. - — Chiefs fever is officially taking over Kansas City. The team takes on the Indianapolis Colts Saturday afternoon at Arrowhead in the NFL playoffs.

One lifetime fan hopes his musical talent will pump up fans for the game. Roy Scott, one of the founders of Healthy Hip Hop, wrote an anthem for the team this season. It's called "Chop It Up;" a play on the hand motion and chant fans do inside the stadium.

Scott said he wanted to create a catchy song all fans can relate to.

He recorded a video for "Chop It Up" at the home opener. At that point quarterback Patrick Mahomes was on his way to the record books. One lyric highlights that: Mahomes is here making history. First two games, ten TDs.

"Now he has 50 TDs and 5,000 yards what he's been able to do, I'm excited. And this is only his first season playing. So you're looking at hopefully a decade of this. So I was excited to rep my dog, Ma-homie. That's what we call him: Ma-homie," Scott said.

Another lyric focuses on Tyreek Hill's speed: You know you can't run with the Cheetah. Dude says see you when I see you.

The Chiefs have lost to the Colts the past four times the two teams met in the playoffs. Scott is optimistic Mahomes can break that streak.
