Dallas Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley has aspirations of becoming much more than just a pro football player. He announced Tuesday that he’s launching a second career, this one being in the music industry.
Beasley shared a press release in which he announced he’s teaming up with “Veteran Industry music producer, Victor “Phazz” Clark” to form an entertainment company imprint, “ColdNation Records.”
His debut single, “80 Stings” is now available in all digital stores. It was written and performed by Beasley.
Beasley also wrote, “Music has been a passion of mine for quite some time now. It started as a kid in high school, in a car with my friends rapping for fun. In college I purchased a program called Studio One with money from a stipend check. That is when I started writing my own music.”
The Cowboys receiver also made it clear this new endeavor won’t have any impact on his NFL career, writing, “Family is number one for me, Football is two, followed by music. Some People may question my loyalty to football, but the passion for that WILL NOT change.”
This past season, Beasley played in 15 games for the Cowboys, catching 36 passes for 314 yards and four touchdowns.
