Ron Artest might have officialy given up his rap career back in January — side note: don't you actually need to have a "rap career" before you can give it up? — but that hasn't stopped him from jumping in the booth to record a few new tracks. Via Gowhere Hip Hop, Ron-Ron kicks a QB freestyle over Alicia Keys' mega-hit 'No One.' (Download the .mp3 here.) First impression, it's no Scalabrine. But Ron definitely sounds more comfortable behind the mic than he did on his 'My World' album. I realize that's not saying much, but still, baby steps, right?
