In case you’re wondering why you’re on the Eye on Football blog on a Saturday morning during the NFL lockout – after reading this, you really should check out the French Open women’s final (after all, Li Na has the chance to make history if she wins*) – I’ve got the perfect reason to explain your presence:
The debut of Titans RB Chris Johnson’s rap song.
*I’m not being sarcastic here, by the way. Tennis has been one of my most favorite sports to cover. Particularly since 95 percent of the players – men and women – are delightful to interview. That’s NOT the same percentage as NFL players, by the way).
Click this link to check it out (some of the lyrics are NSFW). It’s called “Act on Deck,” and the beginning notes remind me of The Wall-era Pink Floyd (the dial tone).
I’m not a big rap guy, so I have no idea how to judge this track. To me, it sounds a little like Ludacris, but admittedly, I have no idea what I’m talking about. It also sounds like the track is incomplete, considering it just kind of fades out, but maybe that’s the point. Who knows?
If you’ve got a thought, leave a comment. I’d love to know if Johnson’s song actually sounds any good.
