Bell is fresh off of a new signing with the New York Jets.
It's a common stereotype that rappers wish they were athletes, while athletes wish they were rappers. NBA players like Iman Shumpert, Damian Lillard, and Lonzo Ball are just some of the hoopers who have tried their hand at being MC's. Meanwhile, rappers like Quavo, Tory Lanez, and Travis Scott consistently show off their basketball prowess on the gram. In the world of football though, running back Le'Veon Bell is the standout rapper.
On Tuesday night, it was announced that Bell was signing with the New York Jets for four years and $52.5 million. Bell was easily the biggest free agent on the market. Free agency officially kicks off today but many teams had deals in place early so they could finalize them. Lining up perfectly with free agency was Le'Veon Bell's mixtape called "Life's A Gamble."
Bell has been teasing the project for a while and over the weekend, he posted the tracklist. With songs like "Lotto," "Large Amounts," and "Free At Last," it's clear the Bell wanted to address his situation with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The running back sat out all of 2018 as he was unhappy with the contracts being offered to him by the Steelers. Le'Veon will receive $35 million in guaranteed money with the Jets.
