During his remarkable 11-year career, Beasley kept a well-hidden secret that recently came to light.

During a recent interview with ‘The Blue Zone’ on Twitter, Beasley surprised fans by revealing his hidden musical talents. Channeling his inner rapping god, the veteran WR went all in and surprised his fans with his rapping skills.

Just like the sporting legends-turned-musicians, Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant, Cole Beasley has boldly ventured into the realm of music. Despite his triumphant NFL career, he kept his musical talent under wraps until the release of his debut album, “The Autobiography” in 2018. This daring move revealed a whole new side of Beasley to his devoted fans – a side they never saw coming. 

With his album, he ventured into uncharted territory. He started his album with the opening track, “I Am What I Am.” Despite his modesty, the album was quite successful, soaring to No. 7 on the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap charts.

Beasley’s music reflects a deeper introspection on various aspects of his life. From growing up on the streets of Little Elm to the challenges of his NFL career, Beasley’s lyrics dive into personal themes.

With his music, Beasley bared his soul, highlighting the moments and people who shaped his life. One such candid moment emerges in his favorite song, “My Baby,” where he shares a heart-to-heart conversation with his wife, Krystin. She helped him confront the toll his relentless work ethic was taking on their family, urging him to prioritize what truly mattered. He even addressed social issues like internet trolls in “United Hate of America.”

Cole Beasley’s Journey: A Heartwarming Return to the Giants

The Giants have made an exciting addition to their receiving corps, announcing the signing of seasoned wide receiver Cole Beasley. The 34-year-old joins the Giants after splitting last season between Buffalo Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and his return to the NFC East marks a reunion with his former offensive coordinator, Brian Daboll.

Beasley’s journey to the Giants has been a remarkable one. Undrafted out of Southern Methodist University, Beasley refused to let go of his dreams. He signed as a rookie free agent with Dallas Cowboys in 2012. The veteran receiver spent seven fruitful seasons in Dallas.

In 2019, a new chapter began in Beasley’s career as he made the leap to the Buffalo Bills. It was here that destiny intervened, reuniting Beasley with a figure from his past – Brian Daboll, who was serving as the Bills’ offensive coordinator. Together, they formed a strong duo that left a lasting mark on the Bills’ offense. In 2022, he joined Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Shortly after the signing was announced, Giants receiver Isaiah Hodgins took to Twitter to share a supportive message. In response, Beasley expressed his excitement and replied, “Let’s get to work big dog. Excited for the opportunity.”

With Beasley’s return, the Giants gain a veteran and an inspiring tale of triumph that resonates with fans. In the grand theater of football, some stories are meant to come full circle, and this is undoubtedly one of them.
