Dwayne Johnson boasts that he ‘didn’t suck’ in his rap debut, but fans claim the Moana song was more difficult.
Users on social media were quick to remind him that he previously collaborated with Wyclef Jean and even delivered a little line in “Moana.” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Johnson is a former WWE champion, a current Hollywood celebrity, and a successful businessman, and if that wasn’t enough, the ‘Jumanji’ star has now entered the hip-hop scene with his powerful rap anthem ‘Face Off.’ After being featured with rappers Joey Cool and King Iso on legendary artist Tech N9ne’s latest single, the California native wanted to show off his rap skills.
The 49-year-old award-winning star shared his “historic rap debut” with his fans and followers on his official Twitter and Instagram accounts. However, social media users were quick to remind the actor that he had already gotten on the mic when he was featured on Wyclef Jean’s 2011 song ‘It Doesn’t Matter’ and even sang a little verse on Moana’s popular song ‘You’re Welcome.’ Dwayne also talked to Variety about his rap debut and the possibilities of pursuing a music career.
