Serena Williams, known for her fierce tennis game, has set her sights on a new competitive arena — the hip hop stage. The 30-year-old two-time Olympic gold medalist is featured rapping on a new song that leaked to TMZ this morning.
The track, which has no known title, was reportedly recorded in a Florida studio owned by Baltimore Ravens player Bryant McKinnie last year.
On the song, Serena cleverly references her tennis background while preemptively brushing off haters.
"I ball hard no tennis racket/I can't see these haters through my Gucci glasses/I make hits like batting practice — they be like Serena, is you really rapping?" she rhymes.
While this is the first we're hearing of Serena's rap career, she's been close to the hip hop world for years. The superstar athlete has been romantically linked to both Common and Drake in the past.
