Earlier this summer, Texas Longhorns wide receiver Daje Johnson decided to show off his rapping ability by releasing a new song. Unfortunately, that song wasn’t very well received and for good reason.
Johnson’s song was titled, “Dealer,” and it was about selling drugs; obviously not ideal for a Division I student-athlete.
This week, during Big 12 media days, Texas head coach Charlie Strong was asked about his player’s decision to release the single and he delivered a very stern response that goes hand-in-hand with his no-nonsense attitude.
As far as Strong was concerned, if Johnson wanted to release a song of that nature he had no desire to remain on the team.
So, not only does Strong not approve of the subject of the song, he didn’t think the production was any good.
Let that serve as a memo to Texas players: Step up your production game, don’t rap about drugs and make sure you aren’t doing anything stupid on social media because your coaching staff will certainly find out.
