A superstar basketball talent and now an actor, Celtics guard Kyrie Irving is apparently giving music a try.
And it’s ‘Ridiculous.’
The song, which also features LunchMoney Lewis, will appear on the soundtrack for Irving’s upcoming ‘Uncle Drew’ movie.
“My whole crew is ridiculous.” Irving sings in the chorus of the track. “Everything that we do is ridiculous. All the girls want to come and get lit with us. It’s about to get ridiculous.”
‘No, that can’t be Kyrie,’ you’re surely thinking. Nope, it is, as confirmed by some behind the scenes footage dropped.
Irving is not the first NBA player to try to turn his athletic celebrity into a music ‘career.’ The Blazers’ Dame Lillard has dropped some tracks before, Lonzo Ball released a song of his own last season. Kevin Durant, Iman Shumpert, and Lance Stephenson are other NBA players to release rap songs at some point in their NBA careers.
Uncle Drew co-star Shaquille O’Neal released four studio albums of his own during his career, and even had multiple songs that reached the top 50 on the U.S. charts.
Uncle Drew hits theaters June 29.
