Steve-O cuts a rap record, and other 'Jackass' news
In his relentless quest for multi-media domination, Jackass’ Steve-O is now taking a stab at a rap career. “It’s not a joke, but it is hilarious,” says one source who’s heard the tracks. “It’s Steve-O doing a bunch of Whip-Its and rapping!” It’s not clear whether an album’s worth of material exists — or if it would get a physical or digital release — but we hear Steve-O did approach 50 Cent to collaborate. No luck. 50’s rep insists, “they are not working together.”
As for the rest of the Jackass crew, they’re preparing for the February 9 rollout of jackassworld.com, which will also be accompanied by an MTV special featuring a host of guest stars. Chief among them: Willie Nelson, who premieres his new video, “You Don’t Think I’m Funny Anymore,” (the one with Jessica Simpson, Owen Wilson and Dan Rather racing lawn mowers) on that same sweeps day, with a special introduction by his pal and Dukes of Hazzard co-star Johnny Knoxville.
