Patrick Swayze raps

* reports that Patrick Swayze wants to release a rap single. The actor, who had a hit in 1987 with She’s Like the Wind, told the site he’s working on a new tune which will show that “rap rhythms [are] an emotional undercurrent for ballads.” Swayze didn’t have a timeline for when his foray into hip-hop would be released.

It’s About. Damn. Time. For far too long, rap and hip-hop have been monopolized by tough young african-americans who grew up in the forgotten streets and alleyways of inner-city America. Well, those greedy bastards are about to get their due, ’cause here comes a new breed of rapper: white. rich. middle-aged. I’m not sure what exactly he’ll be rapping about, but please god let it be about Roadhouse. Although the only thing I can think of to rhyme with Roadhouse is Choadhouse. And I don’t think that’s good. Unless, you know, you like choads.

Is Swayze Crazy? [Page Six]
