(AllHipHop News) There is a long history of professional athletes who decided to venture into recording rap music. Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Meta World Peace, Deion Sanders, and Roy Jones Jr. were just a few of the high-profile sports figures that tried their hand at Hip Hop. Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is now adding his name to that list.
The 2-time pro bowler enlisted fellow Los Angeles native Snoop Lion for his new L.T. Hutton-produced single “Diamonds on my Neck.” The pair shot a video for the track directed by DaVisionaryz.
Jackson has no plans to quit his day job. He just wants to explore another part of his life that he enjoys.
“I fully realize that football is my main job, and I love it with all of my heart, but who says you can’t love more than one thing at a time,” says Jackson. “Football and rapping are the two loves of my life!”
