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.

Nerlens Noel is releasing a rap single. I assume it’s a remake of “My Block,” by Scarface.

In his tweet, Noel refers to a guy named Wes Grams, who has previously recorded music with other Kentucky basketball players – the latest being Terrence Jones, who was on the 2012 National Championship team. Grams and Jones made a rap called “Teach Me Bout Kentucky.”
