Pittsburgh Steelers Running Back Le’Veon Bell Disses Sports Commentator Skip Bayless on “Shrimp Bayless”
Le'Veon Bell is sick of Skip Bayless' criticism. The Pittsburgh Steelers running back steps back into the booth for a new diss track called "Shrimp Bayless." Bell, under his rap moniker Juice, unleashes some bars about Bayless in response to the sports pundit's opinion of the star tailback.
“Shrimp Bayless, I been hearing you lately/You love Jerry way too much, you acting like y’all related/I got the Hall of fame waiting/I’m the best that you hated/I don’t know why you hating/I don’t know why you hating/Probably cause my name is mentioned close with some of the greatest/Then they talk about patience, you close to testing my patience/You say whatever for ratings/I’m not blind, I can see it/You say I’m just an average running back, no way you believe it,” Bell raps.
Bell, arguably the best running back in the NFL, has a deep passion for rapping. In a conversation with XXL, the former Michigan State star explained why he chose to drop his first mixtape in March 2016.
"To be honest, I’ve been rapping since I was 13 years old," Bell said. "That’s when I recorded my first track. But, now that I got a little fanbase and I got a lot of followers, people are actually listening to me. I just didn’t want to limit myself to being on the field. Making music is something I’ve always wanted to do. I guess I kind of went public with everything."
