DeSean Jackson Rides Around Las Vegas, Hangs With Snoop Dogg in Debut Rap Single (Video)

Plenty of athletes have tried their hand in the music industry before. Now, you can count DeSean Jackson among them.

Jackson is focused on bouncing back from a career-worst 2012, which saw him post career lows with 45 catches, 700 yards and just two touchdowns, but he’s also turning his attention to a budding new rap career. The Eagles’ No. 1 receiver released his debut single, entitled “Diamonds on my neck,” earlier this month and even came out with a music video for the song.

The track — surprisingly — isn’t some miserably failed attempt at hip-hop, either. That’s not to say it will top the Billboard charts anytime soon (Does that even still matter?) but it does feature hip-hop legendĀ Snoop Dogg and has a pretty catchy rhythm to it.

Jackson owns a rap label named Jaccpot Records and has signed a number of up-and-coming stars on the scene in recent months. This seems to be the official kickoff of sorts for the label and seems to be a precursor to DJax’s full album, which is expected out later this month.

Check out Jackson’s first official music video below.
