Joaquin Phoenix claims rap career not a hoax

Joaquin Phoenix has denied reports that he move into rap is a joke, saying people may be out to get him.

“There’s not a hoax. Might I be ridiculous? Might my career in music be laughable? Yeah, that’s possible, but that’s certainly not my intention. I had a lot of dudes (MK says, ‘KFed and MC Skat Kat don’t count, Joaquin’) come up and say, `We really respect you for doing it, putting yourself out there, and going with it. Because I think true hip-hop heads know that it’s hard, it’s going to be a hard transition, and people are going to be lining up just to make fun of me.” The rumor that its a hoax “comes from people that I’ve had a falling out with, that are (ticked) off at me?”

So if it’s not a joke, then he has officially lost it, and needs to get off the drugs.
