Serena Williams may be one of the best female tennis players of all time, but that’s not the only thing she can do. Apparently, Serena can also drop a beat. According to TMZ, Williams had some fun laying down a couple of rap tracks last year at a studio called B Major Music Group in Florida. The studio is owned by Ravens offensive lineman Bryant McKinnie, who is apparently close friends with the Williams sisters. Fortunately for all of us, a sample of one of the songs has surfaced.
As you heard, Serena kind of almost pulls it off. The lyrics are catchy enough, but for some reason she just sounds unnatural to me. Maybe because I’m picturing her with a racket in-hand while spitting rhymes? That could be it. I did, however, pick out a favorite line from the one-minute sample:
“I cook the track up like a frozen pizza.”
All you DiGiorno guys or gals know exactly what I’m talking about. If Serena was serious with what she recently said about her personal life, maybe that will give her more time to work on releasing a rap album.
She also seemed upset about the word getting out regarding her rapping career. Check out what she tweeted early Friday morning, hours after TMZ published their story:
Dear @BryantMckinnie I hate you. Lol

This isn’t Serena’s foray into music; remember her karaoke performance? The only question is if she’s a better singer or rapper.
