Former Falcon Samuel Starts Record Label


Recommended Posts


Former Atlanta Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel, now retired from the NFL, has started a new life for himself in the music industry. And hes prepared to recruit an old teammate for his new business.

Samuel, an 11-year pro and four-time Pro Bowler, recently founded Eighties Nation Records and has expressed interest in signing William Moore, who, in addition to playing safety, has released numerous hip-hop songs in the past. Maybe when the hard-hitting defender hangs up the cleats, he and Samuel can join forces once again.

"My guy Willy Mo I would sign Will Moore when his playing days are over if he's serious about it, Samuel told TMZ.

Samuel's decision to start Eighties Nation didn't come out of no where. He's dabbled in the rap game before via Deep Side Entertainment and, with experience in this field, has a clear motive for his latest venture.

Said Samuel: "I saw it as a way to help people get out of our hood and give them jobs and a way to stay out of jail."

Moores catalog includes W.A.R. (WillyMo Always Ready), a track first released in 2012. That year, he and Samuel appeared together on D-Blocks Freestyle Friday perhaps a sign of whats to come.

Good for him, wish him nothing but success

Always loved the attitude he helped bring, I think he'd be a great coach in the league

I'm actually surprised Fatboi didn't drop this info first. I'm sure he has something to do with it.

I mentioned it when he was still playing. His brother ran the company while he was playing. He just changed the name from Deepside to the eighties nation. The roster is still pretty much the same with Young AC being his flagship artist along with a few new additions. AC has a nice buzz in Florida right now and we're trying to get him popping in Atl at the moment.
