The Russian newspaper Pravda is reporting that Washington Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin will be collaborating on a hip-hop song with Eminem.
The former National Hockey League MVP is no stranger to the music world and has recorded a song in the past. Earlier this year Ovechkin recorded a song with the Russian rapper Zhigan.
Ovechkin had the following to say about recording with Eminem: “It would be such an honor for me, because I am a big fan of Eminem. I always have his CDs in my car, and I would be very glad to meet him.”
There is also talk of a video being made to accompany the song.
The NHL is reportedly in contact with Eminem’s representatives about the collaboration between the two superstars.
