Less than a year after a leaked video of her questionable dancing in what appears to be Drake's Miami condo, Tennis superstar Serena Williams may have been taking notes from her former YMCMB boyfriend as a new hip-hop song from her has surfaced online.
The track, which currently remains untitled, leaked across the Internet Friday morning (May 11).
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.

On the record, Williams is heard flaunting and boasting about her skills.
A sample of what you're in for: "I ball hard no tennis racket/I can't see these haters through my Gucci glasses/I make hits like batting practice--they be like Serena, is you really rapping?" Our question exactly. Serena has nothing prolific to offer on her track, but she's not terrible and we assume that she was simply doing this for fun, in which case...go on girl. (RapFix)
Last year, reports of Williams and New York's DJ Clue hooking up emerged.
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)
In 2011, Williams and Drake were spotted on numerous outings together.
Common lost! Just kidding, Com. Drake and Serena Williams only hooked up on the tennis match over the weekend. But, uh, Drizzy sure sounds like he had something else on his mind when he referenced it on Twitter late last week, huh? Just saying. (Complex)
