The Mixtape No One Asked For: 'Metta World Passion' Coming Soon
Los Angeles Lakers starting forward Metta World Peace revealed on Conan last night what he has been up to since being hit with a seven-game suspension following a devastating elbow to the head of Oklahoma City Thunder reserve James Harden on April 22.
While he still has two games left to sit out before rejoining his team in the playoffs, World Peace said he's spending the time working out to stay in shape. But! He's also been hard at work readying a new hip-hop mixtape (he pointed viewers to his website for more details).
The last time the defensive-minded player promoted his rap music, he was roundly criticized by most sports media outlets, as the Lakers and Ron Artest -- as he was known back then -- had just turned in a particularly pitiful effort against the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers. He apologized via Twitter but proceeded to drop the BALL'N Mixtape anyway. We were glad he did, as it came stacked with notable collaborations to help Ron-Ron round out his songs.
