Eli Manning is continuing to build his resume now three years removed from his retirement from the NFL.
A TV star on ESPN‘s “ManningCast” alongside brother Peyton Manning, a walk-on football star at Penn State and now, a budding rapper. That’s right, while Peyton Manning is busy getting down to “Rocky Top” at the CMA Awards, Eli Manning is in the studio dropping bars.
Per ESPN, the former New York Giants quarterback linked up with rapper Fivio Foreign Tuesday for a studio session. Manning came clothed in his best Eminem circa 2000, rocking a yellow hoodie with a bucket hat and chain. Eli Manning was joined by former Giant teammate and center Shaun O’Hara. The quarterback/center duo helped lead the Giants to a Super Bowl championship in 2007.
“Me, Sean and Eli made the biggest song in history,” Foreign said. “Make sure you tune into that download on all streaming platforms.”
It would appear that the trio collaborated to create a Giants-themed album. New York’s Twitter account shared album art featuring the group with the title “Giants on 3.” O’Hara only added to the speculation in his response to the team’s post.
