“80 Stings” is a three-minute, five-second rap without a chorus where Beasley describes his rough route to the NFL being a 5-foot-8, 180-pound receiver. He name-checks Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and quarterback Dak Prescott.
Never miss a local story.
“Jerry’s boss now when I ball out, I’m dog out when Dak get the ball out,” Beasley raps at one point. Much of the upbeat, high-energy song is dedicated to Beasley providing for his family.
“If you’re talking money then you lost me,
I’m saving all of it for my offspring.
Can’t stand your necklace up off me
Because I don’t have one,
spent that on college funds for both my sons.
Competition yeah I have a ton,
When you don’t look the part you have to,
When you do have opportunity, sack up,
Like the odds against me
I just have one opportune moment
But’s that all I need, because I own it ...”
Beasley said in a release that football will always come first.
“Some people may question my loyalty to football, but the passion for that WILL NOT change,” he said. “I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.”
