Philadelphia Eaglesâ€™ 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 â€œtwo Câ€ 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.
â€œItâ€™s just a different lifestyle and things like that Iâ€™m getting into,â€ DeSean Jackson told The Philadelphia Post. â€œJust 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,â€ said the NFL star, who also raps on the compilation.
Those are around DeSean Jackson are worried that the Eaglesâ€™ $45 million investment could be jeopardized by the Los Angeles nativeâ€™s association with the genre of Hip-Hop.
â€œThis is an unnecessary distraction in the prime of a promising football career,â€ a source close to Jackson told The Philadelphia Post. â€œIf he stays on this course he could end up in significant financial distress.â€
The Jaccpot Records compilation is due out in July.
