Rap music. It seems to be sweeping the nation, engulfing young people with its infectious beats, despite the efforts of squares to write it off or even ban it. But it will not go away! In fact, St. Louis Rams rookie running back Isaiah Pead tried his hand at it last week at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere event.

All joking aside for this aside, am I the only one here old enough to remember such talk about rap? That it was dangerous? Ohhh. Or destined to fade because it wasn't real music? Ahhh. Yeah, those people were a little shortsighted. Anyway, I'm not here to laugh at Tipper Gore or remind you that Ice-T's heavy metal crossover experiment Body Count was never really a threat to our nation's youth because it wasn't very good.

I'm here to drop some beats on your ass, so to speak.

Giants running back David Wilson and Pead joined forces for some freestyle rap at the Rose Bowl last weekend, and we've got the video of their performance.

Yeah, probably best that both guys stick to football, but Wilson had Pead beat with the beats. Props to both. No amount of tequila and Xanax in world can ply me up to a mic for Karaoke.

Some rap after the jump.
