Michael Irvin called out his son during an appearance on Skip Bayless’ FS1 show, Undisputed, teasing him for pursuing a career in hip-hop. The NFL legend joked that his son grew up in a “gated community” and doesn’t know where his lyrics are coming from. Irvin’s son raps under the name “Tut Tarantino.”
“I got a son. He raps. His rap name is Tut Tarantino,” Irvin said. “If you ever listen to some of his raps. I’m like, ‘Oh my god. Where does this come from, son? You grew up in a gated community your whole life.’ But he’s rapping my life. Because we romanticize and fantasize about that old thug life, ghetto life, and all of that stuff. [W]e used to work to get away from [it]. Now, we’ve gotten to a place somehow where we’re running back towards it. In the music, in everything.”
