She’s already made a huge racket in the tennis world. Now, Serena Williams may be seriously trying to do the same as a rapper.
After TMZ originally broke the story of the tennis star trying her [back]hand at rapping in a Florida studio owned by Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle, Bryant McKinnie, last April, the celebrity news website is backing it up with a leaked track of Serena rhyming.
“I ball hard, no tennis racket/I can see the haters through my Gucci glasses,” Serena begins rapping with an almost mechanical flow on the unnamed track.
“That’s me, thanks for listenin’/Schoolin’ these rappers, they should pay tuition,” she spits later on the track. “I make a lot of money, but that ain’t your business/And you can tell the people I said this…I win, I really mean it/Swag out this world, you should call me Venus/That’s my sister, my name is Serena/On the court, I serve ’em up, no subpoena/I cook the track up like a frozen pizza/Beat so crazy it might blow your speakers/I ain’t ever been a loser and I’m always on top…roofer.”
Wonder what Common, her ex-boyfriend, and Drake, her rumored flame, think about this?
Despite the track surfacing, tennis fans need not worry. The former No. 1 world player isn’t about to trade in her tennis racket for the microphone on a fulltime basis anytime soon. Williams overcame a slow start to defeat Caroline Wozniacki at the Madrid Open tennis tournament on Thursday (May 10). She’ll face rival Maria Sharapova in the quarterfinal round Friday (May 11). Williams, 30, has made over $35 million in earnings over the course of her career.—Mark Lelinwalla
