Serena Williams, tennis star, fashion designer and sometimes actress has stepped into the booth to record a few songs. One of the rap songs was leaked to TMZ, and you can listen to the track below.

The oft-Grand Slam champion has admitted that she doesn't "love" tennis, so it seems the songs are another step in Williams' attempts to branch out. She has also joined Sleep Sheets, a company which offers sleep aids.

As for the lyrics? "I ball hard, no tennis racket / I can't see these haters through my Gucci glasses," she begins rapping over a bouncey, Southern-inflected beat. "Swag out this world you should call me Venus," she continues. "That's my sister, my name is Serena."

She even gets into a bit of "hashtag rap," the style in which one ends a couplet with a word that captures the essence of the preceding clause (it's something Lil' Wayne and Drake have perfected). In Williams' song, she raps: "I ain't ever been a loser, and I'm always on top (roofer)."

What do you think? Will the song herald a new career or be a big flop?
