Tim Shelton talks about this year's Aztec theme song 'Montezuma 55th'

The Aztecs have a theme song and music video! Learn how it was made from the artist himself.

Former Aztec basketball player and rapper Tim Shelton continues the tradition of creating a theme song for the Aztecs season. For the second year in a row, he created a music video for the song that plays on the jumbotron before Aztec basketball games. This year’s song, Montezuma 55th, has been especially popular with SDSU students and fans of the team, amassing over 21,000 views on Youtube in 3 days.

We got a chance to talk Tim about producing the video and even getting Coach Steve Fisher to make a cameo appearance. This is what he had to say:

“The video process was a lot of work; the challenges were in making sure it was within all the boundaries of what was acceptable to SDSU. I was asked by a number of people if I was going to [make another video] with a mindset that maybe I would, maybe I wouldn't. Ultimately when the team asked, it put things over the edge.

Finding resources was an interesting process. We made the video on Aubry's and my budget. Aubry Wiltcher, is the director of both this year and last year’s video. She loves what she does and has her own production company, Life Captured Media.

We filmed at 5 different locations, the last being the basketball office with coach fisher. It was very last minute when he decided to be a part of the video. He actually saw the final product and decided after that he would be in it, and that it was phenomenal. So I called Aubry up she came within the hour, and we filmed his part in 10 minutes. We told him what to do and he nailed it in one take, while doing what he does and adding an element that only Steve Fisher can add. He was wonderful and has the most epic scene in the video.

I would like to thank the dance team for showing up in full force with their coaches at the last minute, SDSU for saying that I could make the video and represent the university on that level, and I’m grateful to have a talented friend like Aubry that I work with.”
