Kawhi Leonard's debut in the music industry Culture Jam with NBA YoungBoy and Rod Wave arrives next Friday

The Los Angeles Clippers star Kawhi Leonard is ready to take off his jersey and take on the role of producer. On Monday he announced the birth of "Culture Jam", a music project involving YoungBoy Never Broke Again e Rod Wave. The reaction of the fans was the shock for a number of reasons: Kawhi Leonard, never known to most as the most social player in the NBA, who participates in a live on Instagram; the official announcement of Culture Jam; the track-preview of "Everything Different" to be released on Friday 7 May.

The debut in the music industry and the x2 NBA champion is trying to "merge  hip-hop and basketball together" in the same words as Leonard, who added "It's fire" increasing the hype around "Everything Different" the first single from the album. IG Live was also attended by Mikey Williams, a young player from Lake Norman Christian School in Huntersville, NC, and one of the most interesting prospects in the country after the season in San Ysidro which closed at 29.9 points, 6.7 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game.

Leonard also entered the music business for charity reasons. After announcing "Culture Jam" he immediately stated that "a portion of the proceeds from streaming and downloads of the piece will go to the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation".

"Everything Different" will arrive on all streaming platforms on May 7, as well as the official video involving Williams. Culture Jam is expected to come out later this year.
