Metta World Peace's NBA career may be nearing an end, but his career as a recording artist is still going strong.

The 34-year-old played in only 29 games with the New York Knicks this past season, so he had some time to focus on his music.

On Monday, World Peace announced some big news:

In his new song, "Thanks Mom, Thanks Dad," World Peace gives his parents a lot of credit for helping him get to where he is today. 

As you can tell from the new song, he is very appreciative of all that his parents did for him.

This isn't the first time that he has put out music. The man formerly known as Ron Artest already has some songs on iTunes.
