You might be familiar with Le'Veon Bell as a Pittsburgh Steelers running back, but now, through a just-released mixtape called The Interview, you can meet Juice, Bell's rapper alter ego.

The NFL star dropped the 10-track tape Tuesday (March 1) on SoundCloud with this open-minded explanation: "I'm just a 1st Team All Pro Running Back not limiting myself to anything." The Michigan State alum is smart to keep his options open: He suffered a season-ending MCL tear in his right knee back in November, though he was just cleared this week to run again in preparation for the NFL season this fall.

Chart Champs: Athletes-Turned-Musicians

A highlight of The Interview is the smooth mixtape-closer "Never Better," featuring DJ Madd Rich, which borrows the soulful beat from Red McFly's "Greatest" (that track has its own sports connection too: "Greatest" is a tribute to NBA legend Michael Jordan).

Listen to The Interview below, and stay tuned to see if Bell can reach the Billboard charts someday, like Shaquille O'Neal, the 1985 Chicago Bears and other athletes-turned-artists before him:
