Clint Dempsey to Release Rap Album
The United States soccer team recently capped off a huge comeback victory against Ghana in this years World Cup. Captain Clint Dempsey, or known as his rapper name Deuce, scored a huge goal in the first minute of the game.
Maybe we will hear about this moment in his upcoming album titled “The Redux,” which is a thirteen song rap album that Dempsey will release after the World Cup. Dempsey made the album with his rapper friend XO. They released the first single “It’s Poppin,” which can be heard here and bought on their website www.deuceandxo.com.
Dempsey talked about his new album in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.
“We just were having fun with it and it ended up being an album,” Dempsey said.
This is not the first time that Dempsey has dabbled into the world of hip-hop. In 2006, Dempsey released a song and video titled “Don’t Tread.” The song features XO as well and talks about Dempsey’s rags to riches story and his love for the game of soccer. Dempsey gives a shout out to legendary DJ and Houston rap icon DJ Screw, which shows his knowledge of his hometown’s rap scene. He also addresses the popularity of soccer in the US, which in 2006, was nothing like it is today: “Think soccer ain’t a sport?/ then why’d Nike sign me?”
