Joe Mauer to Release Rap Album

May 5, 2010

When you hear that Joe Mauer is on the one’s and two’s you probably think of fastballs and curveballs, but that’s all about to change. Mauer has announced that he is going to be releasing his debut rap album; Joe -M: Most Valuable Playa later this month. With the extra time on his hands lately, and after years of rapping at birthday parties and high school graduations, this was the next logical move for Mauer. Things already look promising for the young rapper with Joe’s first concert scheduled somewhere he’s familiar playing, the Metrodome. The concert is already a sell-out with no word yet if Michael Cuddyer will be the opening magic act. Also in the works is a music video to replace the god-awful G.B. Leighton song “Twins Territory”, so it looks as though Mauer is here to save us again. Joe’s been pretty tight-lipped about his new project, but I caught up to his now Producer/ Manager Ron Gardenhire who was nice enough to give us a sneak peak of the songs that will be on Joe’s new album:

“Catchin Heat”-Ft. Francisco Liriano & Joe Nathan
“Alwayz Wearin Protection”-Ft. Jim Thome
“Most Valuable Playa”
“Intentional Walk (of shame)”
“Mound Trippin”-Ft. Jesse Crain
“Mixed Signalz (between my thighs)”
“Gettin Good Wood on it”-Ft. J.J. Hardy, Justin Morneau & Michael Cuddyer
“Headin for Home”-Ft. Scotty Ullger
“Dirty Kneez”
“Just a Bit Inside”-Ft. Delmon Young & Denard Span
“Catcher in Your Eye”-(hidden track)
Gardenhire went on to tell me that he’s never seen Joe be so “real” and that it was a lot of fun seeing the team get together to make such a great album. So it looks as though Twins fans and girls everywhere are going to have to get ready for this one. Joe Mauer may be number seven in all of our programs, but is sure to be number one on the charts!

    Thanks, knowing Joe’s talent (and our childlike imagination) I’m sure he will have many more albums and even different musical tastes.

    Well done! Honestly, it probably isn’t that outrageous to see this actually happen, though Mauer said he’s more of a producer than rapper.

    I’d like to hear Thome try to rap with him. It would be horribly bad.
