While rehabbing a knee injury last year, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell spent most of his down time working on another passion of his as a rap artist.
Just under a year later, Bell was clearly excited to announce his debut album “Post Interview” is slated to be released on March, 1, 2017.

Bell got an incredible amount of praise for dissing sports media’s resident antagonist, FS1‘s Skip Bayless, on the track “Shrimp Bayless” a few weeks ago.
Naturally, Bayless responded.
Hi, this is Shrimp Bayless. I will respond to Le’Veon Bell’s dis track tomorrow at 9:30 E, FS1, live from Discovery Green in Houston.

The album will include a track featuring the one and only Snoop Dogg, who is perhaps the Steelers’ most famous fan.

More often than not when athletes attempt to make the transition to music, it ends in disaster. Let’s hope Bell is an exception to the trend.
