Since Kentucky basketball star Nerlens Noel tore his ACL in February, he’s had some free time on his hands. What has he been doing, you ask? Rapping. That’s right, rapping.
Noel tweeted about his new rap song that will be released at 8 p.m. tonight. The song has been reportedly called “Number 9.” We’ll have it for you as soon as we can get our hands on it.
#BBN y’all ready to hear me and @wesgrams new song tonight ! Dropping at 8 o’clock.

But that isn’t stopping him from showing support that they can somehow win another, as evidence by his appearance in this rap video by Lexington rapper Wes Grams. This seems rather appropriate, consideirng that Noel sports the same hairstyle...
Last night, Nerlens Noel and Wes Grams dropped a new rap track titled “NUMBER 9″, an obvious reference to Kentucky’s drive to earn its ninth NCAA Championship. Noel rapped about many things, including his flat-top, his injury, and whether he’ll come back to Kentucky for another year.
While reviews have been mixed, we know where Mizzou center Alex Oriakhi stands:
So let me get this straight, he’s 6’10”, can block your shot from the bench, a freak athlete, future NBA star,and he can rap? That’s just not fair. Nerlens Noel makes his rap debut with Lexington native Wes Grams. If that name sounds familiar, Grams also rapped with former Kentucky star Terrence Jones in their song “Teach me ’bout Kentucky.” Noel sounds a lot better...
No, Nerlens Noel cannot play the rest of the year. However, that isn't stopping the Kentucky center from rapping in this great new "anthem".
