I have a feeling that most of you know that NBA player Joe Smith was a #1 pick in the 1995 NBA draft and that he currently plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers where he a solid contribution of 19 points off the bench in game three of their first round series against Detroit. However, the one thing that you probably did not know about Joe Smith was about his rap alter-ego, Joe Beast.
Currently Joe Smith has finished work on his debut album presented by Nova Unit records called, “The Beginning” which features some hit tracks which includes, “Murder Kapital” and “I does this.” One of the contributors to the mixtape is none other than Oklahoma City Thunder wing and NBA slam dunk champion Desmond Mason. (Note: Smith played with him when he was in Oklahoma City this season before being acquired by the Cavaliers)
You can find out more of the information and listen to songs at Joe Smith’s Myspace page which can be viewed here.
The one positive for Joe Smith gets to add his name to the number of failed NBA rappers but hey at least better than Kobe Bryant.
To be honest, I’ll just stick with learning how to play the guitar to get laid:
