Carl Crawford is speaking out about how he managed to build a successful independent label after his MLB career.
The former MLB star spoke to Forbes about his successful post-baseball career. Carl explained his initial resistance to become involved in the music industry while playing.
He said, “But every time I saw an athlete doing it, they were trying to be the rapper themselves. I didn’t want to make the mistake of trying to rap or [go into the music industry] while I was playing. I wanted to get on the business side, be an executive, and have a long career in this industry like I did in sports.”
