11 Celebrities Who Tried To Rap (And We Really Wish They Didn't)

Jive / WWE

There's a lot of celebrities out there who are very multi-talented individuals. Some of them seem to think that they have a talent for being musicians as well, and in the case of these next 11 celebs, their attempt at proving their talent for rapping was very, VERY wrong.

Shaquille O'Neal

We're not even a little surprised that Shaq tried to have a rap career (he even plays a rapping genie in Kazaam), but he really should've just stuck to basketball.

Brian Austin Green

The former 90210 star and current Megan Fox husband tried to kick off a rap career in the 90s. Personally, I blame Vanilla Ice.

Aaron Carter

Everyone's second-favorite Carter sibling tried to rap about beating Shaq. It didn't even beat Shaq's awful rap songs.

Kevin Federline

A throwback to a time when music culture was pretty much at an all-time low, we see Jessica Simpson and Dane Cook introduce a very pregnant Britney Spears, who then introduces her husband's rap debut. The result is the stuff of legends.

Bob Dylan

Dylan's made a prolific career over the years by adapting his sound to many different styles, but we're sure he wants to forget his guest rap verse on a Kurtis Blow track just as much as we do.

Ron Jeremy

The singularly greasiest porn star to ever live, Ron Jeremy put out a rap song that stayed on the Billboard charts for a whopping 27 weeks. What the hell was 1995 thinking?

Hulk Hogan

The Hulkster put out a song with WWE's house band during the peak of his Hulkamania. It's exactly as bad as you think it is.

Mr. T

Actually, Mr. T having a rap career would kind of make sense. I mean, I don't think anybody would be surprised. What IS surprising is hearing him rap about respecting your momma.

Eddie Murphy

Yeah it was part of a comedy album, but it's still hard to listen to the once-biggest name in comedy trying to rap.

Joe Pesci

Joe Pesci actually announced at one point that he was quitting acting to pursue a career in music. Take a wild guess why he went back to acting very, VERY soon afterwards.

Tom Hanks & Dan Aykroyd

This music video for the remake of Dragnet is pretty much everything wrong with rich white people trying to rap (at least until Kevin Federline hit the scene).

Which do you think was the worst?
