So maybe I’m just being skeptical here, but I’m not sure what to make of this story. Last night Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins announced that he would soon be launching an R&B career. He posted a photo on Instagram of what appears to be his CD (they still make CDs?) and wrote, “Coming soon…click link in my bio to hear sneak peak of my new single feat the homie @chancetherapper off my R&B album #BoogieSmooth”…
If you click the link, you are taken to this page, which promises an album called Misunderstood, with a single called “Emotional” and a bonus track called “Big Fellas” (featuring Rick Ross).
A video promoting the project also popped up on YouTube featuring producer Mally Mall…

This is all interesting stuff, but I still have a few doubts.
1. Tomorrow is April Fool’s Day.
2. On the promotional video for an album of DeMarcus Cousins singing, he doesn’t actually sing.
3. According to available internet evidence, Cousins doesn’t seem to be much of a singer…

Perhaps I am wrong, and Cousins has yet again been Misunderstood. He’s got my attention. #boogiesmooth
UPDATE, 1:18 p.m. ET: The intrepid Marc J. Spears over at Yahoo Sports confirms our suspicions … this is an April Fool’s day prank
In what might have been an early April Fool's prank, Kings say that DeMarcus Cousins is not putting out a R&B album called, "Boogie Smooth."—
