Tech N9ne released his 23rd studio album ASIN9NE on Oct. 8, and the independent rap legend called upon a few cohorts to join in on the fun. Lil Wayne, Russ, Snow Tha Product, E-40 and more make appearances, but there’s one name in particular, that’s catching people by surprise. On “Face Off,” the sixth track on ASIN9NE, Tech tapped former professional wrestler and blockbuster movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for a quick set of bars.
“It’s about tribe, it’s about power / We stay hungry, we devour / Put in the work, put in the hours and take what’s ours / Black and Samoan in my veins, my culture bangin’ with Strange / I change the game so what’s my muthafucking name (Rock),” the six-time WWE champion rapped.

Although The Rock is calling “Face Off” his “first rap song,” this isn’t the first time he’s appeared on a Hip Hop track. Way back in 2000, Wyclef Jean called upon Johnson to handle the hook duties for his single with Melky Sedeck titled “It Doesn’t Matter.” Dwayne Johnson continues to dip into Hip Hop culture and saluting the creatives that continue to build it up.
