Many years ago, Allen Iverson attempted to enter the music game as a rapper, but now the basketball legend has signed a new artist he hopes will allow him re-entry into the industry.
Ty Gracie, Iverson's artist on, has been releasing mixtapes for years, but is now formalizing his career with the basketball star.
Gracie's experience is similar to the conditions seen in The Allen Iverson documentary entitled, “No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson,” and both men are from Virginia.
“People from Bad Newz (Newport News, Virginia) have a different story to tell," he said.
Gracie has worked with Young Jeezy, Fat Joe, Snoop Dogg, Nicole Ray, Jadakiss, 50 Cent and others, according to a press release.
