West Coast rapper Game is fully behind tennis superstar Serena Williams' foray into the hip-hop game and said she has a bright future in the music industry.
While brief with his words, the California-bred emcee flowered Williams with accolades.
The Game thinks Serena Williams is an AMAZING rapper and if she decides to drop an album, it's sure to sell big ... this according to the man himself. Game tells TMZ ... after he heard Serena's rap for the first time, he knew that she definitely had "raw skills" and was a "really talented artist." Game says he wasn't that surprised ... considering the tennis champ's Compton roots. He tells us "You shouldn't expect her to come with anything less than the official rap bars," then added "I can see her doing big things." (TMZ)
Williams' new record also caught the attention of other hip-hop artists including Rah Digga.
""I'm always on top...roofer" Serena Williams' new song...I mean...ok fine," Digga tweeted May 11th.
"Yeah im so playin tennis now...and basketball...and whatever Amber Rose lists as her occupation... RT @AMAZINACE ... http://tmi.me/pPfVi" (Rah Digga's Twitter)
The untitled track began circulating online Friday (May 11) morning.
Serena Williams has proven over the years that she can be many things outside of a world-class tennis professional. She's become a nail technician, a fashionista, an actress and now she's also MC Sizzle. OK, that's not her real rapper identity, but that's what I shall call her from this point forward. TMZ bought obtained a demo of a rap song from Serena Williams and apparently the one-time girlfriend of rapper Common and alleged girlfriend of rapper Drake has got some ability with verbal jousting herself.

She has reportedly been putting in studio time dating back to last spring.
Tennis superstar Serena Williams doubles as a fashion designer, spokeswoman, and part owner of the Miami Dolphins -- but now TMZ has learned she's adding RAPPER to her resumé. We're told Serena hit the studio last week to lay down a few tracks ... and is working with a record label owned by Minnesota Vikings star Bryant McKinnie. During the session, we're told Serena did some work with renowned hip-hip producer DJ Clue ... and she wasn't half-bad. (TMZ)
