(This is what he means by “off-the-chain doggy-style.”)
I’m sorry, but there are times when you have to break your own ban. This is one of those times. In a new interview with Fighters Only, Quinton Jackson discusses how testosterone replacement therapy turned his life around, though it caused him to gain a bunch of water weight that contributed to his UFC 144 scale-fail. And then he dropped this bit of info (via Fightlinker):
“I’m in a studio — you know I make music as a hobby — I am in the studio right now with my friend who produced all my tracks. We made a big hit actually, people will be really surprised when I release this because I have been making music for like six or seven years but never released anything. Now I am finally comfortable to actually release something. I was depressed yesterday but then we made this hit last night and it immediately cheered me up because normally I make music just for a hobby, I never release it, its just for me to enjoy. But this song cheered me up in my hard times right now and I think my fans can get some enjoyment out of it. It cheered me up if they don’t like it I don’t give a fuck. I’m the king of doggy style.”
No arguments there. But how does hormone replacement therapy figure into this story? Well…
“[T]his was my first time ever using testosterone. I took what the doctor prescribed to me and I went to the pharmacy…I gave myself small doses and that shit immediately changed me, that’s why I am saying now I am not going to retire. I am not gonna retire no time soon, its just unfortunate that I got this injury. I started hitting it up pretty good, I still gotta take care of my knee but I feel like a 25 year old again. My sex life changed, I was back to five times a night like when I was 25, straight up…
I keep it real, I am not doing anything wrong. Its legal and I am not abusing it and I am not going over certain levels. From what I learned about it, when I got tested my levels my levels were really low and the doctor was telling me that athletes can burn testosterone. Sure enough I did it like a week or two and, I couldn’t train but…that’s why I did this song about doggy style! My doggy style was buck wild man I’m telling you.”
Hear that, kids? TRT will make you a musical genius. And believe it or not, Rampage actually performed his music in Tokyo after his fight with Ryan Bader:
“Because I’ve been rapping and stuff for a while and I am putting together this album that I’ve been working on for a while and the producer is really serious about the music; to me its just a hobby but he is really serious so he scheduled something for me to do like a concert in one of the biggest clubs in Roppongi [nightclub district]. Me and my friend who taught me how to rap like six or seven years ago. A lot of American fans won’t know that I nearly had a record deal with Pride, the company that ran Pride was called DreamStage and they did fights, movies and music…It’s my life and my career and I want to have fun and entertain people.
So yeah I did a concert same night, it didn’t affect my mentality one bit. Win or lose I still want to enjoy myself because my job is done. I didn’t bail out because I lost, I think that’s a pussy move. I enjoyed myself, I had my champagne and I put on a show. They were so surprised I could rap. I entertained them twice in one night in two different ways. Now a Japanese company wants to…well I’m not going to say yet. But I am getting offers from Japan because of that concert and so it was a win out of my loss.”
Just from his description, Rampage’s new music sounds like it’ll be a cross between prime 2 Live Crew and Sapp Time. The album will be called “A.L.F.A. (Appreciate Large Female Asses),” and the new single “Doggy Style” will feature cameo appearances by Too $hort and Arianny Celeste in a non-singing role.
