Of course he does! Is Martellus Bennett the first member of the Green Bay Packers to drop some sort music?
No, I believe that honor would go to Robert Brooks, who released the single Jump, which was about the Lambeau Leap, back in 2009. And while that was a swell novelty, the song really wasn’t all that great.
Bennett, who isn’t really rapping about anything that’s football related, has a slightly defter touch. He released a five-track EP called I’m Not A Rapper But Some Of My Friends Are…
Here’s a sample and you can go get the rest on Soundcloud if you’re so inclined.

From the Soundcloud account:
“I am not a rapper but some of my friends are..” is exactly what the title says it it is. It was just me and some of my friends hanging out in the studio making music for fun and this is what came out of it. Pretty cool to have so many talented friends and be able to create with them at a high level. I am on a mission to express my creativity in as many ways as possible in 2017, this is a part of my creative journey. Enjoy.”
I’m liking this guy more and more.
A nice change from the ho-hum-toe-the-company-line-regurgitate-the-PR-sound-bite robots the Packers want out of their personnel.
I’m not asking from outspoken assholes, just players with some actual personality.
“That honor would go to Robert Brooks, who released the single Jump, which was about the Lambeau Leap, back in 2009.”
2009???? Do your research JoBo. That song has been out since the nineties. I got the cassette tape for Christmas, and it’s infinitely better than that crap Bennett pulled out of his ass.
