Alexander Ovechkin, a Russian professional ice hockey left winger and captain of the Washington Capitals, is going to record a song with internationally known rapper Eminem. NHL’s top paid player is a big fan of hip hop, and he is very happy that now he will have a chance to become a part of it with a legendary artist.
“It would be such an honor for me, because I am a big fan of Eminem. I always have his CDs in my car, and I would be very glad to meet him. By the way, Eminem’s 8 Mile film is just great,” Alexander told Life Sports.
Ovechkin is not going to become a part of any film projects yet. As for the song, it is not clear yet, when the track is going to be recorded. Most likely, there will be a video to the song. NHL managers are currently in talks with Eminem’s representatives. Spokespeople for the league say that it would be great PR for hockey.
