Cole Beasley set to release first rap album

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley is a man of many talents. Not only is he an experienced football player, he is also an up and coming rap artist. This past January, he released his first single titled “80 stings”. The next day, it debuted #12 on the iTunes Rap/Hip Hop chart. I must admit, I downloaded it and enjoy getting down while listening at the gym.

Of course when his single dropped, Beasley got some criticism for “trying” to be a rapper when he should be concentrating on football. What those critics probably didn’t know (or didn’t care to know), was that he has been doing rap since he was in college. Newsflash haters, even professional football players are allowed to have hobbies.  In an interview with CBS, Beasley assured fans that when training camp and the season starts, his focus will be on football.

Beasley must be doing something right because after “80 stings” was released, he was contacted by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame artist Darryl McDaniels (DMC of Run DMC). The two have been collaborating on a single that will be released later this year.

This coming Saturday, Cole will host his first album release party at Lava Cantina in the Colony with doors opening at 6pm and the show starting at 7pm. The party is open to the public and tickets are available here
