Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has taken on his next role, and this one isn’t coming to theaters. The actor is making his rap debut, featured on Tech N9ne’s new single, “Face Off.”
“Face Off”, a new single on Tech N9ne’s new album ASIN9NE also features Joey Cool and King Iso.
“I love music. Anytime in my movies when I can implement some musical elements, I always love doing that,” Johnson told Variety.
This isn’t the first offer Johnson got from hip-hop artists, but until now he rejected them. Tech N9ne Dm’d him on Instagram, and he jumped at the opportunity.
“The biggest star in the world said something back to me! You know what I’m sayin? I am hyped. We are all hyped!” Tech N9ne told Variety.
The two met a few years ago and Johnson has been sharing the rapper’s music on his social media page for years.
“When Tech texted me, I knew I would make this work. We’re aligned, just in terms of our work ethic and desire. When Tech and I first met years ago on the set of ‘Ballers,’ we were talking about this idea about being the hardest worker in the room. He said something that I really appreciated: basically, ‘There could never be enough food in this room or on this set that could make me full because I always want to be hungry.’ I just love that,” Johnson continued.
“Face Off” dropped on October 8. Watch the music video below.
