Curry comes clean about ‘Harden Soul’

Aug 19, 2013, 3:47 PM PDT

You’ll be happy to know that NBA stars Stephen Curry and James Harden are sticking to basketball after their recent Footlocker commercial.

The ad that went viral on YouTube recently, features Harden as a singer and Curry as a music producer. The Warriors’ guard was blunt with his comments when asked recently if Harden has a shot at making it in the music industry.

“You want me to be straight up about it? No.” Curry¬†said in an interview with NBA.com. “He had some bright spots, but we have some work to do with him.”

Curry also admitted that he has no shot at ever being a music producer. If the one horrific verse they played in the commercial isn’t enough, or you’re interested in experimenting with self mutilation, there’s actually a full version of the song “Harden Soul” online.

You don’t have to be an audiophile to know that Curry isn’t simply downplaying his musical mastery. Check out his rap verse in this video that was made when he was attending Davidson College.

Good thing he is amazing at basketball and has a fantastic sense of humor.
