This weekend Ray Lewis will officially join other greats in gridiron immortality as he’ll be enshrined in the NFL Hall of Fame. Over the course of his 17-year Hall of Fame career, Lewis gained a reputation as one of the most intense players in NFL history, and never one to be at a loss for words. 

The Ravens recently posted a clip showing Lewis’ easygoing fun loving verse spitting side. Here’s a young Ray Lewis rapping on a horse in 1997:

Here are some of the lyrics: “My name is Ray and I’m here to say…” “Running through the grass, intercepting a pass, make a tough running back fall on his a–.”

Ray Lewis came up with and performed his own rap … on top of a horse. Where has this footage been all this time?
