Joe Smith, underground rapper? 

Did you know that Joe Smith of the Cleveland Cavaliers, he of the nineteen points and ten boards in only nineteen minutes last night in a victory against the Pistons, was also an underground rapper? Joe Smith who was once the first pick in the NBA Draft. Joe Smith of Norfolk, VA.

Straight. LeBron and the other players call him by his hip-hop aka, "Joe Beast." Smith has apparently been at it for more than ten years. He says he has written hundreds of songs. His new album The Beginning features an appearance by Desmond Mason, a swingman who was Smith's teammate in Milwaukee from 2003-05. According to ESPN's Chris Broussard his hip-hop ode to the Cavs, "One Goal," has become the club's playoff anthem this spring. The song blared through The Q's sound system as the players warmed up before the first two games of this series.

Interesting work. Are there some gang influence issues that we should be questioning? Money laundering concerns perhaps?
