The Actor Is Trying His Hand At Rap Music Again
It seems like Dwayne Johnson might have a career in rapping. In talks with Variety, the actor revealed that he’s open to trying out the rapping scene in the future. “I would love to do a repeat with Tech N9ne and Strange Music. If I had the opportunity to collaborate with another artist out there — hip hop artists, blues artists, outlaw country artists — then let’s talk and let’s figure it out,” Johnson told Variety.
However, he made it clear that he’ll agree to projects that allow him to discuss topics important to him. Johnson noted that he’d want to rap “the right words that feel authentic to me.” In other words, he’s more than willing to drop a few bars in the studio. Looks like his rapping debut might’ve jumpstarted a new career path for Johnson.
