Footballers Who Tried To Be Rappers

Today, Fan Park takes a look at a few footballers that decided to try their hand at rapping. Some were surprisingly good, while other were nothing short of terrible!

Here Are Five Footballers That Attempted To Make It As Rappers:

Didier Drogba

Let’s just say he is a far better striker than a rapper… The Chelsea star did a short documentary on writing a rap song, and then later performed it. He wasn’t very good, and we're glad the African legend hasn’t tried his hand at it again.

Benni McCarthy

We like to think that he is the king of the footballing rap game after he partnered up with TKZee to make a remake of the ‘Final Countdown’ called ‘Shibobo’. Benni had great success with the single, as it was reported to have sold over 100 000 copies in one month.

Clint Dempsey

Former Tottenham Hotspur star Clint Dempsey featured in the song named 'Don't Tread' with Texas rappers XO and Big Hawk. Dempsey’s is known in the rap game as ‘Deuce’, and this song featured in a Nike campaign during the 2006 World Cup.

Asamoah Gyan

African’s have rhythm and it’s no surprise to hear that the Ghana captain tried his hand at the rap game. He hooked up with Afrobeats star Castro for his debut in front of the mic, under the rap name ‘Baby Jet’.

Paul Gascoigne

The Former England and Tottenham midfielder decided to enter the rap game in the early 90’s with a song called “Geordie Boys”. The song was awful and the music video wasn’t much better.

Can you name any more players who tried to rap?
