Tennis Star Serena Williams at Work on Rap Career

Serena Williams is reportedly following in the footsteps of fellow professional athletes Shaq, Kobe Bryant, Ron Artest and Allen Iverson, by picking up the microphone.

Adding to her resume as a tennis champion, fashion designer and co-owner of the Miami Dolphins, the on-again-off-again girlfriend of rapper Common has allegedly enlisted DJ Clue in recording some songs for NFL star Bryant McKinnie’s new label, B Major Music Group.

There is no word yet as to whether Williams is working on an actual album, recording songs for some kind of charity release, or simply just rapping for fun, but TMZ reports that she is “not half bad” at MCing, posting a photo of Serena in the recording booth.

“Look @TMZ got our project on Blast…We gotta finish the album!” Clue tweeted on Monday (April 25).

Last summer, Williams secured her 13th grand slam title after winning Wimbledon for the fourth time. At the time, she confirmed her split from Common, but the couple were last spotted together again in October, enjoying a relaxing day at the beach after attending a Dolphins game the night before. And, while there is no footage of Williams rapping online, The BoomBox was able to scrounge up this video of Williams showing off her vocal prowess on Madonna‘s ‘Like a Virgin.’
