Philadelphia Eagles’ star wide receiver DeSean Jackson is taking advantage of his downtime in the off-season, by expanding his Hip-Hop record label.
DeSean Jackson the CEO of Jaccpot Records (the “two C” spelling is common amongst Crip gang members), which counts artists like Kid Cali, Young Bangg and Jackson himself, as acts on the roster.
Jackson, who recently signed an 5-year, $45 million deal with the Eagles, was recently in Los Angeles.
The artists on his roster shot videos for an upcoming Jaccpot Records compilation album.
“It’s just a different lifestyle and things like that I’m getting into,” DeSean Jackson told The Philadelphia Post. “Just kind of helping out my boys that I grew up with and just hopefully make it a career as far as rapping and things like that,” said the NFL star, who also raps on the compilation.
Those are around DeSean Jackson are worried that the Eagles’ $45 million investment could be jeopardized by the Los Angeles native’s association with the genre of Hip-Hop.
“This is an unnecessary distraction in the prime of a promising football career,” a source close to Jackson told The Philadelphia Post. “If he stays on this course he could end up in significant financial distress.”
The Jaccpot Records compilation is due out in July.
