Stephen Jackson recently released an excellent rap single, which alluded to the painful Western Conference Finals and the importance of the NBA to his development as a person. Athletes don’t have an outstanding track record in music but it appears that Jackson will have more success than his peers.

In his illuminating interview with Michael Beane of Sports Radio Interviews, Jackson expressed his passion for his burgeoning rap career.

“Yeah, definitely,” Jackson said. “Like I said, anything I put my     heart and my mind to do, I take it real serious and I put my all     into it. I’m going to be the same way with music. I’m going to     play basketball until the game won’t let me play no more, and     I’m going to do music until I can’t talk no more. That’s going to     be the same way.”

Be sure to check out the rest of his interview as Jackson commented on his music career and loyalty to his hometown of Port Arthur.
