Is DeMarcus Cousins embarking on a singing career?

By Lang Whitaker, NBA.com

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Perhaps I have been fooled one too many times. Remember when we thought Kobe was making a piano, and it turned out to be an elaborate ad campaign? Yeah.

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

    You’ve probably been caught out again Lang! :) If those videos are an example of DeMarcus’ “singing” he should never be allowed to open his mouth in public or in the presence of recording equipment for the rest of his life.

    this is what “lbj” is going to say:

    playing in sacramental and making cd’s won’t get you a ring. You need to play with lebron “king” james. We will trade future hall of famer Norris Cole plus future first round picks for you Demarcus cousins

      @tI, future hall or famer Norris Cole?? Must have lost your mind.

    Singing Career won’t give Cousins his first ring. He need to play to Miami and play with our “king” LeBron” We will trade Greg Oden to the Kings!
