Apparently, since his NFL career is on standby right now, Chad Johnson wants to become a rapper.

Okay, just kidding. Uh, we think. But, earlier today, Wale hollered at the-football-player-formely-known-as-Ochocinco to remind him that his Folarin mixtape is dropping today at 2 p.m. And, CJ responded by challenging him to a battle. After he gets done battling another rapper, of course…

Chad isn't new to this, either. Back in April, he issued the same sort of challenge to Meek Mill and followed it up by engaging in a full-fledged Twitter battle with him. So, don't be surprised to see the same thing happen here. Anything for a little extra publicity, right?
