    Patrick Swayze to release a rap album

    After years of being indirectly involved with Hip-Hop music, actor/pop singer Patrick Swayze is finally experimenting with rap music.

    Swayze recently said he was experimenting with “rap rhythms as an emotional undercurrent for ballads.”

    The 53-year-old Swayze had a massive hit with the song “She’s Like The Wind” from the soundtrack to the film "Dirty Dancing" in 1987.

    The song is one of the most played songs in the history of radio and helped the Dirty Dancing soundtrack sell over 11 million records.

    Hip-Hop fans are familiar with Swayze, who has starred in such classic movies as “Red Dawn,” “Roadhouse,” “The Outsiders” and “Ghost.”

    Swayze’s last name has been used as Hip-Hop slang since the early 1990’s, when EPMD popularized the term on various albums.

    In U.S. rap vernacular, the term "Swayze" means to “leave” or “disappear,” cleverly derived from the title of his 1990 hit film “Ghost.”

    Swayze resurfaced in the rap world again in 2002, when he starred as an aggressive FBI agent named “Detective Fitzgerald” in Ja Rule’s video “Reign,” taken from Ja’s The Last Temptation album.

    The controversial video came during an actual federal investigation of The Inc.’s Irv and Chris Lorenzo for money laundering, charges the brothers were eventually acquitted of.

    Swayze, who has a role in the new flick “Keeping Mum,” did not peg a release date on his new material.

    Swazye is currently filming “Fox and The Hound II.”

    the only thing more depressing than Swayze releasing a rap album is that the article called Roadhouse (ie Road House to those who are intersted) a "classic."

    "Road House" is indeed a classic. It is easily one of the top twenty "bar bouncer comes to Kansas City and indiscriminately murders two dozen people" movies of all time.

    From my (narrow) viewpoint...

    Can Patrick's rap album be any worse than ANY rap album? Not on your bling-bling, sucka.... b/c in my world none of that rap-stuff is really music. Not sure what to call it (b/c of rule 5), but music does not come to mind.

    Amen to that.

    Although I really do enjoy $0.50. He's a great guitarist. I love the rockin' solo he plays on "In Tha Club".

    Rap is to music what Nascar is to sports.
