The former Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots wide receiver, Antonio Brown, has not been in the NFL since he was cut several months ago, but that hasn't prevented him from being in the news recently. The latest reason? He's developed a rap album titled 'No More White Women 2020'.
There's one song on the album that is generating the most attention, however. The track titled 'Whole Lotta Money' is the first to be released, and suffice it to say, it's not generating the best responses by people on social media. In fact, it's probably best that he gets back to trying out for some NFL teams, as soon as possible.
A Call for Brown to Retire from the Rap Game
People on social media were quick to criticize Brown's album as a complete flop and encouraged him to hang up the gloves in the rap game, as quickly as he can. One person on social media chimed in saying, "Ummm. Hey Antonio Brown @AB84, bruh. RETIRE NOW FROM RAP. This song and video is AWFUL. Hell, just delete it."
While it's fair to say that it's only his first track released as a 'rapper' and sometimes it takes time to get going, others aren't banking on any improvement.
Lost a Whole Lotta Money
Another social media user changed the name of the song to reflect Brown's current financial situation and foreshadowed what is to come, should people listen to his newly released song.
"Song should be called “LOST A WHOLE LOTTA MONEY” lmfao this dude @AB84 need some serious serious help!" they wrote.
But people didn't stop at taking shots regarding his finances. They went all the way to the top office of the United States and the current conflict with Iran, sharing an easy solution to deescalate the situation.
"Hey Mr. President and the entire U.S. Military you really wanna stop Iran and the war?? Go to them and play @AB84 new rap song on loop....it will have them begging for mercy and will agree to never cause and issue again if you stop playing it! #WholeLottaIdiot #IForgaveTekashi69," they commented.
So, No More White Women with... White Women?
While not all comments were inherently negative, people were still critical of some of the aspects of the song and album, as a whole. A user on Twitter commented, "@AB84 I'm not hating on the new song whole lotta money, I actually like it, I think you giving mixed messages though. Naming the album No White Women, having white women in your videos" had me guessing the whole project itself.❄️ #Iloveall."
Still, the overall perception of the song and album was not good. Some dubbed it as the worst album of the year, which is saying something, considering it's only the first few days of January.
Time to Find a Different Avenue to Make Money
It's currently unknown whether Antonio Brown will ever play another down in the NFL. After being cut by the Patriots following allegations of sexual assault, Brown worked out for the New Orleans Saints, although, no contract was offered for the former wide receiver.
Regardless, it's obvious that Brown is attempting to stay relevant, but the transition from athlete to musician has never been easy for anyone. It might be wise on Brown's part to heed the advice that people on social media are giving him.
