In a pretty unexpected but not unprecedented move, Pittsburgh Steeler All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell just dropped a mixtape under the moniker Juice. The nickname was apparently given to Bell by his teammates and coach on the Steelers. They don't seem bothered by the fact that "Juice" is O.J. Simpson's nickname, but Bell has the talent to shoulder that comparison.
The mixtape itself is pretty solid, if a bit generic. He takes a lot of influence from current popular artists like Travi$ Scott and Future, using autotune throughout the project. The beats are trap-heavy, featuring swinging bass lines and minor key keyboard progressions.
What do y'all think of Juice's first foray into rap? Should he stick to the gridiron or can he hold his own like Shumpman?
