He’s already given his fan base a little taste of what’s to come on this album with the release of the single, “Shock Value.”
You guys should type “shock value” In iTunes and see what pops up. It should look somethin like this. I wrote this shortly after releasing 80 stings and it will be on the album. Enjoy. pic.twitter.com/3IXVyV4MDr

“Shock Value” is an amazing combination of old school hip hop beats with a modern day hook to appeal to any rap fan.
No doubt some of Beasley’s inspiration came from his journey. He notes in the track of his humble beginnings as a Little Elm, Texas resident that found a way to being a prominent piece in the Dallas Cowboys’ offense.
Beasley went undrafted by the Cowboys in 2012 and sent shock waves through the NFL with his breakout season in 2016 when he had 75 receptions and averaged 11.1 yards per catch.
Now Beasley is sending shock waves through the music industry with this latest album and no doubt he will see similar success.
Fellow Dallas Cowboys teammates past and present have been showing Beasley love all over social media:

By that reaction, it seems like Beasley is well on his way to a successful debut.
