NFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin once again publicly raised his eyebrows over his son’s rap career. Per Complex, the Dallas Cowboys legend, in an appearance on Skip Bayless’ FS1 show Undisputed, implied the things his son “Tut Tarantino” raps about in his music are the complete opposite of his experiences as he “grew up in a gated community” his whole life.
The 57-year-old touched on his son’s rap career during a discussion about NBA star Ja Morant. As previously reported by Face2Face Africa, the Memphis Grizzlies point guard was suspended for 25 games without pay after he was seen showing what looked like a gun twice this year.
Irvin in the segment stressed that his son hasn’t walked the talk with regard to the lyrics in his songs. “I got a son. He raps. His rap name is Tut Tarantino,” Irvin started.
“If you ever listen to some of his raps. I’m like, ‘Oh my god.’ Where does this come from, son? You grew up in a gated community your whole life. But he’s rapping my life. Because we romanticize and fantasize about that old thug life, ghetto life, and all of that stuff. When… we used to work to get away from. Now, we’ve gotten to a place somehow where we’re running back towards it. In the music, in everything.”

“He raps about some of the hardest stuff in the world,” Irvin said in reference to his son Elijah. “I say to him, ‘Son, you grew up in a 20,000 square foot gated community! Where does this stuff come from?'”
He continued: “I worked hard to get you out of this, and you’re rapping right back to it.”
