Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson just cooked up his first rap verse.
The Baywatch actor has made his rap debut on Tech N9ne’s new single, Face Off, from his album ASIN9NE.
Sharing the video on Instagram, the 49-year-old wrote: “Grateful and humbled to make my rap debut with these hip-hop kings as I was just trying to deliver a rhythm, flow, energy and intensity that didn’t suck. “
He also thanked Tech N9ne for “coming up with this big crazy idea of wanting me to drop some Rock gasoline bars on the fire.”

Speaking to Variety, Dwayne said: “I love music. Anytime in my movies when I can implement some musical elements, I always love doing that.”
While he previously appeared in Wyclef Jean’s song, It Doesn’t Matter, he shouted his catchphrase but did not rap.
The megastar, however, has no ambition of becoming a hip-hop artist or rapper.
“I did see an opportunity here to create a song that really inspired and motivated me to push for more and fight for more,” said Dwayne.
