Antonio Brown has completed his transformation from NFL superstar to rap artist. AB returned on Wednesday (April 20) with the release of his star-studded album titled Paradigm.
The project features 11 tracks in total with guest appearances from Fivio Foreign, Young Thug, DaBaby, Keyshia Cole, French Montana, 42 Dugg, Jacquees and more. French and 42 appear on the remix to AB’s lead single “Pit Not the Palace.”
Brown has endured quite the journey since famously taking his jersey off and leaving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New York Jets game at MetLife Stadium on January 2. He apologizes for making a scene on that Sunday afternoon on “Business Boomin” featuring DaBaby.
“Sorry, ran up off the field/I gotta get my money, I’m boomin,” he raps.
The former Bucs wide receiver isn’t closing the door on his NFL career, but has been focused on music while most notably being spotted running around with Kanye West, who was expected to have a feature on the album after AB teased them working together.
HipHopDX even caught up with AB at his album release party in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (April 19).
In February, AB teamed up with Fwaygo Music, which is backed by TuneCore, to ink a $5 million deal to become the face of the company and release his debut album.
“Fwaygo is a platform that gives artists an independent opportunity to be able to drop,” he said at the time.
