Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Al Harris is sharing the Gospel through music. He is getting ready to make a Christian rap album with childhood friend Kevin Soto.

Sports and rap fans can expect the album to come out later this year, released under 31 Entertainment.

“We’re trying to start a movement with this music,” Harris told the Sun-Sentinel.

“We’re trying to say that you don’t have to cuss, or have to sell drugs or whatever, to be cool. You can still be cool and fly, and love the Lord.”

Harris has been in and out of jail, but turned his life around when he met God.

He is known throughout the league for his physical, bump-and-run coverage style.[1]  He has been given the nickname “Dirty-One” by other players and officials as it encapsulates his aggressive style of play with his uniform number; 31.

“A lot of the album is about being a man,” Soto said. “A lot of it is telling everyone what I’ve done, and this is what it can lead you to, and what [Harris] has done, and where that hard work can lead you to.”

Added Harris: “If all they listen to is, ‘I am smoking weed,’ or, ‘I am going to shoot up this guy, or I am going to go do this,’ then a lot of the times you tend to veer off that way,” said Harris. “I want to be able to put on a CD my son and I can be into, with a positive message, but one that still has a hardcore, street feel.”
