Miami Hurricanes defensive end Chad Thomas apparently has a bright future ahead of him off the football field.
As Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post explained in a piece published Monday, Thomas produced "Apple of My Eye," the opening track on the Rick Ross album Rather You Than Me.
This was not a one-off for Thomas, who has already grown a reputation as a local producer known as "Major Nine."
According to Tesfatsion's piece, Thomas first met Ross "in 2013 or 2014," when the player was still in high school. That meeting, it would turn out, resulted in Thomas' becoming associated with the music business.
We look forward to hearing more of his work regardless of whether he suits up for an NFL team.
