Kevin Durant Has Rap Album In Works

Kevin Durant may be releasing a rap album, if a recent interview with the Washington Post is any indication.


Kevin Durant has had a very busy offseason, and it hasn't been busy merely because of his long stint with the U.S. men's national basketball team during its gold-medal winning run at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. His first feature film, "Thunderstruck," premiered on Aug. 24, 2012, and the Oklahoma City Thunder star might soon be getting into the entertainment business in another way -- by releasing a rap album, which he hinted at in an interview with the Washington Post:

Does it make you want to go in the studio and put out your own album?
I think I’m going to do something. I have some resources and some nice people that’s going to help me out. I have a studio in my house already. Maybe I might put out a little something and have a little something.

Durant will also be featured on San Antonio Spurs swingman Stephen Jackson's forthcoming album, which could mean a burgeoning rap career for the three-time scoring champ beginning in 2012. As long as he doesn't forget about basketball, Thunder fans probably won't be too concerned with Durant finding success on the mic as well as on the court.
