Karim Benzema: Rap Stud or Dud?
In every young, talented footballer’s tenure, there are smart career moves, and then there are the occasional “WTF” moments. In the case of Karim Benzema’s newest venture – rapping on a new French track, “Fais moi la passe”/”Let me pass” – this is undoubtedly the latter.
Never mind that Rohff, the man responsible for this meeting of the minds, says the Real Madrid footballer, “raps like a God!” – it’s clear that Benzema is no Mario Gomez with his guitar strings. If you consider yourself any bit of musically-inclined, then you’ll quickly realise, too, that despite all the auto-tuned bells and game-spitting whistles his alibi ballad offers, he shouldn’t be quick to quit his day job.
After all, isn’t that sort-of in limbo anyway?
Will our ever-discriminatory readers be so kind as to subject your eardrums to this before thumbs-upping or downing each others’ thoughts in the comments below? Consider it your duty, Kickettes – something that is owed to the tone deaf mocked before him.
