As we noted previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert is somewhat of a rap savant and has done some freestyle rapping in his spare time.
Recently, USA First Lady Michelle Obama is going to releasing a hip-hop album and it appears that Iman is going to be on one of the title tracks.
Check out some more info from the fine folks over at Rolling Out:
Although she probably won’t rhyme or sing on any songs, it will be the first time that a first lady has delved into hip-hop for a greater cause.
The album will promote Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign in an effort to fight childhood obesity. Obama enlisted DMC, Doug E. Fresh, Ashanti, Monifah and other artists to create songs on the 19-track album.
The project, sponsored by Partnership For A Healthier America and Hip Hop Public Health, will seek to raise awareness through entertainment.
Iman will be rapping on a track called “Pass The Rock” featuring Artie Green and we will have it for you, when it comes to light.
