But he hoodwinked a reporter into thinking he was ready to drop his first album. (Via the Boston Herald)
Rondo was asked for some of his hidden talents off the floor.
“Hidden talents?” he said. “Singing. You know, I’ve got a rap CD coming out in like two weeks.”
Rondo then told the reporter he was a little bit like Drake, that he would both rap and sing on the album. He continued with the prank, telling the reporter he’d like to do a collab with Keri Hilson.
He then continued:
“Yea and nay,” said Rondo, his face still unchanged. “Music is something I’ve been doing my entire life. You know, basketball I’ve been playing since I was probably maybe 15 or 16.”
He was asked about his philosophy for overcoming adversity and he said, “Staying positive and eventually things will turn around for me. You know, it took me like six years to release my album, so I’m finally excited about doing that.”
The man thanked Rondo and left. Only after a couple of media types more familiar with Rondo’s sense of humor laughed did he offer a slight grin. The poor guy, he was told, would soon be looking for that CD.
“I might have to put one together then,” Rondo said.
Six years to release an album? It only takes Lil Wayne about six seconds.
Step your fake-rapping game up, Rajon.
