The Rock is adding another level to his already very seasoned and successful career in the entertainment business, he is becoming a rapper!
That’s right, the WWE wrestler turned massive movie star, has decided to try his hand at a rapping career, and already dropped a new rhyme in hardcore rapper Tech N9ne’s new record. The ‘Jumanji’ star’s verse shows up on Tech’s new track, ‘Face Off’ from his new album ‘ASIN9NE.’
If you listen closely, the movie star drops a few bars at the end of the song, and you can clearly tell it’s the man himself.
The Rock: ‘It’s About Tribe, It’s About Power!’
In the record, The Rock is paying homage to his roots and pumping up the audience about his extreme workout tactics. “It’s about tribe, it’s about power. We stay hungry, we devour. Put in the work, put in the hours, and take what’s ours,” Rock raps. The actor touches on being black and Samoan, and the verse is set to one of his insane at-home workouts. The Rock is currently running the track with a video of himself pumping iron to promote his Project Rock by Under Armour collection.
The best part, Rock even drops an F-word in the track, but it is bleeped in the version leaked online. Of course, it is bleeped, remember this guy is still doing massive children’s films.
If you are a fan, you know this isn’t the first time he’s showed off his musical skills. The Rock used to play the guitar in the ring during his WWE days, and was featured in Wyclef Jean’s music video for the track ‘It Doesn’t Matter.’ Of course, he isn’t the first to cross over, remember Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant’s rap careers? Ya, google that one when you have a chance.

Tech N9ne & The Rock — Fans React!
Interestingly, the reaction from most fans is very encouraging. “The Rock’s verse is only 40 seconds and it is actually really good. Rock’s verse was really good, he actually flowed well and you can understand what he said. The other rappers on the song just babbled like robots with no meaning to their lines. But Rock put some meaning to his rhyme with Samoan culture, wrestling,” one person tweeted.
Another added, “Tecca Nina is one of the greatest rappers in history. I saw a concert live and the guy even sounds better performing live than in audio. Anyway, so The Rock is accomplishing everything before being the president of America!”
