NEW YORK (AP) — Kevin Hart is used to entertaining audiences with his jokes, and now he’s hoping to do so with his rhymes.
The superstar comedian has signed a deal with Motown Records to release an album under his rapper alter-ego, Chocolate Droppa, this fall.
While he hasn’t released music before, Hart has showcased his rap skills in videos posted online. He offered a warning to his fellow rappers in an Instagram post Thursday: “If you’re a rapper I suggest you run because I’m about to come for all of you sucka’s.”
The 37-year-old performer, who is from Philadelphia, has had back-to-back success in recent years with a sold-out comedy tour and roles in movies like “Ride Along,” ”Central Intelligence” and “Think Like a Man.”
