Tony Parker retires from Rap

tprap.jpg


Well, San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker's music career to be exact.

Back in 2007, Parker launched a French rap album which included singles such as "Balance-tois," "Premier Love," and "Top of the Game."

In a recent interview with French site Tele-Loisirs, Parker was asked if he had any plans to release another rap album but he made it clear he has retired from the music business.
 

[H]e confirms that his career is over, ''I'm retired from music."

 

Despite the jokes many had at TP's rap career and the lack of success in the U.S., he did find success in his home country of France. His single, "Balance-tois," reached number one in the SNEP official French chart and was tops for one week.

His videos included teammate Tim Duncan and former teammates Brent Barry, Robert Horry and Nazr Mohammed.  In the video for "Balance-tois," it featured his ex-wife actress Eva Longoria. 

This music endeavor was probably sparked by his free-style rap performance when the Spurs took home the 2007 NBA crown. While at the fan celebration, Parker took the mic and showed off his French rapping skills.

MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.
