On the field, his jersey says Bell. In the studio, he goes by “Juice.”
Le’Veon Bell is on the verge of becoming an NFL superstar, and his talents are not limited to running the football. Bell aka Juice has been steadily dropping tracks over the last year, including a seven-track EP titled “Until The Post Interview” in November.
Featuring assertive vocals and trap beats, Juice has a SoundCloud page totaling 27 tracks. Bell switches up the flow on his latest EP, rapping fast on tracks like “Mastermind,” or slowing things down for songs like “One.”
“This a quick little EP for the fans, just wanted to give them a preview of what’s to come.” Bell told Complex after the EP’s release. “Stay tuned. I got way more music on the way.”
Bell started rapping in grade school with friends, but never considered music more than a hobby. As his football stardom grew, rapping became a key escape and stress-reliever. Bell now records music in his home, and told MMQB that his agent has fielded calls from record labels.
If you’re a Steelers fan, give Juice a few spins. Bell takes his music seriously, and is constantly retweeting support from fans who discover his music.
Bell’s talents got the attention of one of rap’s legends last summer. Snoop listened to Bell’s first mixtape, called “The Interview,” and showed the Steelers some love on Instagram. Bell and Snoop exchanged numbers, and Snoop laid down a verse for Bell’s upcoming album. When TMZ asked Snoop how the collaboration sounds, he told them, “Dope as f–k.”
