The 28-year old receiver has an album in the works, which he says will be released later this year, but he insists his passion for football will not change. As part of today's press release, Beasley mentioned how he started writing his own music in college and has continued to do so for the last six years.

"Today, I am releasing my first song off of my album which will also be released later this spring," Beasely wrote. "Music has been a passion of mine for quite some time now. It started as a kid in high school, in a car with my friends rapping for fun. In college I purchased a program called Studio One with money from a stipend check. That is when I started writing my own music."

"Some people will question my loyalty to football, but the passion for that WILL NOT change," he wrote. "My aim is to do exactly what I have been doing for the past 6 years, making music because that is what I enjoy doing." 

In the first track off his upcoming album, Beasley name drops some Cowboys including team owner Jerry Jones and QB Dak Prescott.

"Can’t snap a necklace up off me, cuz I don’t have one. Spent that on college funds for both my sons ... but that’s 4 accounts I’m accounting for. Another 2 that’s yet to come, yes I have enough."

"I’m bossed out but Sunday, Jerry’s boss now when I ball out, I’m a dog when Dak get the ball out."
