While NFL teams are using their offseason to secure draft choices and free agents, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell has been busy in the studio. On Friday, Bell — also known as “Juice” — released the 16-track album Post Interview.
One of the most talked-about tracks from Bell’s latest offering is “Shrimp Bayless,” a diss track aimed at former ESPN First Take host Skip Bayless. Bayless — who currently works at Fox Sports 1’s show Undisputed — has taunted Bell over the years with his harsh criticism. In response, Bell headed to the studio to fire back at Bayless: “Shrimp Bayless, I’ve been hearing you lately/ You love Jerry way too much, you acting like y’all related/ I got the Hall of Fame waiting, I’m the best that you’ve hated/ I don’t know why you hating, I don’t know why you hating.”
Last May, Bell also slammed Bayless on Twitter. “I need to get on 1st take cuz I’m tired of @RealSkipBayless tlkin this & that when it comes to me! say what u need to say to me to my face,” Bell tweeted.
For the Post Interview set, Bell puts his lyrical prowess on display atop beats from producers like Charm, J.I. Retro and Ricco Music, among others.
Last November, Bell told Billboard‘s Ballin’ Out podcast about his rap beginnings: “I recorded my first song when I was 13, 14 years old, and I’ve been running with it ever since.”
