Tennis star Serena Williams leaked a snippet of her first Rap song this week. She started her music career last year when she went into a studio to work on some beats.

Hip-hop producer DJ Clue reportedly helped Serena out. The beat is pretty light and saturated with urban ambience sounds like sirens, surrounded by scales of pitched electronic bongo-type sounds. Overall the production is sounding very clean and the vocals are crisp and clear, pretty easy to understand.

The lyrics include references to her story and even mention her sister Venus. Here they are:

“I ball hard no tennis racket/I can’t see these haters through my Gucci glasses/I make hits like batting practice–they be like ‘Serena, is you really rapping?’ ”

“That’s me, thanks for listenin’/schooling all these rappers, they should pay tuition/ I make a lot of money but that ain’t yo business/you can tell the people I said this.”
