Serena Williams should make some cuts to her inner circle. The tennis star's attempt at rapping hit the 'Net last week, and while rumor has it that she's serious about pursuing a music career, the Compton native is crying foul. According to Williams, the whole thing was (thankfully) a joke, and the song found its way online thanks to a not-so-loyal friend. During a press conference in Italy, the 30-year-old explained why the public was subjected to her lyrics. "I was in the studio with friends and I wanted to do something and so they said – do this and it was for me," she said. "The next thing I know -- that was one or two years ago and then I read online that I was a rapper and so my backstabbing friends did that to me and so if I see them, I will act like a rapper -- if you can get my drift."
If she were to take the leap over into music, maybe Common can give her some pointers. In the meantime, the culprit behind the song leak might want to watch their back.
