After winning the coveted Vince Lombardi trophy at Super Bowl LI in Houston as a New England Patriot against the Atlanta Falcons in February, newly certified Green Bay Packer Martellus Bennett drops his new EP I'm Not a Rapper But Some of My Friends Are. 

The tight end and dinosaur enthusiast combines his love for extinct creatures and hard-hitting hip-hop on the five-track set with tracks like "Dinosaurs and Dinomite." He also salutes an esteemed supermarket chain on "Whole Foods" and the '90s Shaquille O'Neal fighting game "Shaqfu."

"I am not a rapper but some of my friends are.." is exactly what the title says it it is," reads the SoundCloud description from Marty, who recruited pals MatchBoxTony, David Allen Dope, Low Down, Franchise Tief and Shaud Money for the project. "It was just me and some of my friends hanging out in the studio making music for fun and this is what came out of it. Pretty cool to have so many talented friends and be able to create with them at a high level. I am on a mission to express my creativity in as many ways as possible in 2017, this is a part of my creative journey. Enjoy."

The EP follows his 2014 mixtape Year of the Orange Dinosaur
