No, this isn’t a joke. Tennis superstar Serena Williams has embarked on a rap career.
The first snippet of the 12-time grand slam champion’s foray into music was posted by TMZ overnight – and man, it’s something to behold.
The one-minute long clip is untitled, although after a few listens, it sounds like the working title might be I Win.
It contains lyrics such as: “I cook the track up like a frozen pizza, beats so crazy it might blow your speakers”.
Other pearlers include: “I ball hard no tennis racket, I can’t see these haters through my Gucci glasses”, and “I make hits like bat in practice, baby like Serena is you really rapping?”
This is all coupled by your standard rap-track production – blaring sirens, robot voices, hand claps etc.
Rumour has it this is just the start of Serena’s rap career, as she apparently recorded a number of songs in Florida last year at the B Major Music Group studio.
