Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel was not content to rest on his Pro Bowl laurels this offseason. With the 2011 NFL season still in question, the Fort Lauderdale native has spent some time locally with his friends in Goons United by the New School (G.U.N.S.), a rap group with members all from Broward County affiliated with area label Deepside Entertainment.
Still, as a clip posted on 365voice.com shows, the sporting side of Samuel is still at play.
Calling himself Dabbadeuce (in reference to his uniform number, 22), Samuel drops a verse on "Overtime" with references to running the streets in Broward and admitting that he's an athlete, so he won't "talk too greasy." In any case, it's another side to the Boyd H. Anderson High School/University of Central Florida star.
Catch Samuel on Twitter at @Thepresidentcb, where he's retweeting mixtapes he likes and chatting with DJ Drama on the reg.
