Move over, Robert Brooks and Stephen Jackson. There’s another Wisconsin professional athlete who’s moonlighting as a rapper. Over the summer, probably around the same time Giannis Antetokounmpo was getting a shout-out on the new Public Enemy record, new Packers tight end Martellus Bennett apparently found himself in the home studio of Snoop Dogg. While there, the veteran Cowboys, Giants, Bears, and Patriots player—who occasionally releases music under the name MartysaurusRex—somehow wound up in front of a mic and trading bars with the hip-hop icon.
On Monday, Bennett posted a song called “Take A Flight” on his Soundcloud page. In truth, the upbeat and inoffensive three-minute track isn’t anything special, except for one factor: it features motherfucking Snoop Dogg. Bennett explained the origin of the unlikely collaboration in the song’s description:
“While in L.A. this summer, I ended up at Uncle Snoop’s crib, and this is what we ended up creating out of the blue. It wasn’t planned. It just happened. If you ever see me out, ask me about that day. It was pretty awesome. I did a song with Snoop Dogg WTH!!!!!”
Not only is Bennett the best tight end to suit up for Green Bay since Jermichael Finley and one of the few modern NFL players who shows glimmers of actually having a personality, the Packers player now shares a song with Snoop. Listen to “Take A Flight” now and be thankful Martellus Bennett is wearing green and gold this season.
