The Rock makes his rap debut on recent Tech N9ne track.
It looks like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is making a foray into hip hop. The actor recently posted a video of himself laying down some rhymes on a new track by recording artist Tech N9ne. With his entrepreneurial spirit it’s clear that The Rock is ready and willing to try and do just about anything he sets his mind on.
The actor and entrepreneur has his hands in many different pots. The Rock is building an empire across a multitude of different mediums. He’s dominated in television and has a stranglehold on film. Now The Rock appears to be venturing into brand new territory…in hip hop.
While The Rock may have been known for his way with words during his WWE tenure, rapping is a whole different story. The Rock apparently on special request from rap artist Tech N9ne came up with his own rap verse for the new track “Face Off” also featuring Joey Cool and King Iso. You can see a clip of The Rock’s verse in the post below.
“Black & Samoan in my veins, my cultures’ bangin’ with Strange…”
Grateful and humbled to make my rap debut with these hip hop kings 👑🙏🏾 as I was just trying to deliver a rhythm, flow, energy & intensity that didn’t suck 🤣
Huge grateful shout to the hip hop community for all the luv 🖤 & music fans for all your HYPE reactions

Hip hop and rap requires some a certain level of lyrical prowess as well as the confidence to pull it off. The Rock did a pretty good job in his first step into the rap game. Will he make this a regular thing? Chances are that is highly unlikely.
