Antonio Brown warms up before the game against the Carolina Panthers

Antonio Brown released a new song just hours after storming off the field mid-game and being cut by Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

The wide receiver’s antics were already causing a stir on social media, but instead of addressing his actions, AB opted to drop a new two-minute track called “Pit Not The Palace,” which he shared via a Twitter link to all music platforms.

The new song doesn’t directly mention Sunday’s incident, but instead addresses AB’s lavish lifestyle. But that doesn’t mean fans aren’t wondering about the timing of the release. Sure, we’ve seen some interesting rollouts in 2021, from Satan Shoes to stadium-filling listening sessions, but some Twitter users are under the impression that Brown’s decision to walk off the field at MetLife Stadium and toss his uniform into the crowd might have all been done in the name of promoting his new single.

Of course, after AB did what he did, Tampa coach Bruce Arians has since announced after the game that Brown was “no longer a Buc.”

“He is no longer a Buc. That’s the end of the story,” he said when asked about what happened. “Let’s talk about the guys who went out there and won the game.”

Brown later took to Instagram and thanked the Bucs for giving him an opportunity. 

Buc or not, people have plenty of theories about the latest release from the former player—who last dropped music in 2020 with his full-length project Himmothy. Check out some notable reactions to Brown’s new track below.

So if Antonio brown planned this whole thing just to release a rap song… what do we do with our hands
