Steve-O is known for his outlandish antics, but now he’s about to get musical. He already had a go at rap music, and that career is an embarrassing reminder of how bad he got on drugs. This time around he might wrap it around comedy so it is supposed to be funny.

Steve-O got clean years ago, in 2008, and now he is an example of how sobriety can work if you work at it. Thankfully, he turned a new leaf and he can look back at that failed rap career with a bit of brevity.

While speaking to Hip Hop DX, Steve-O revealed that he is considering a rap revival. The Jackass veteran said that he is considering cutting a comedy album, a gangsta rap comedy record to be exact.

“We’ve had so many artists on my podcast, and we just floated it out there, ‘If I made a comedy gangster rap album, would you be down to feature on it?’ I mean, maybe the people are just being nice because they’re on my podcast and they don’t want to say that there, but it really feels like I can put together a very star-studded project. And if I can just wrap my head around the idea of it, you know, work through the scar tissue of that last experience, I think it could be really fun and funny.”

We’ll pay close attention to Steve-O’s activity in the recording studio. This could be quite an interesting addition to his library of achievements in the entertainment industry. If anything, it could give him something to do while awaiting the next Jackass project to come around.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
