Can You Take Joaquin Seriously as a Rapper?

Earlier today, we told you that Joaquin Phoenix is working on a career as a rapper after announcing his retirement from acting back in October. Most of you will miss seeing Joaquin on the big screen, and while we knew he was exploring his musical side, we never thought rapping was going to be his next endeavor. You can check out a preview of his skills here, then tell us — can you take Joaquin seriously as a rapper?

I just watched the clip of Joaquin rapping on TMZ...LOL!!! That was so hilarious, but also so scary because it is not a joke people...he actually is giving up acting to rap...and what is worse, he is getting coached by Diddy. Too sad...

I love Joaquin Phoenix -- he's truly an amazing actor. His performance in Reservation Road is very moving. However, I don't think he has been acting normally... :cry:

Joaquin is a great actor, so I'm really disappointed he's not acting anymore. Maybe if he weren't already famous he could have been a rapper, but no, I can't see it at all. It just doesn't seem to fit his persona. When the story first came out, I really couldn't see him being any kind of singer (no matter how well he played Johnny Cash). I just don't get what in the world he's thinking; it's so bizarre!

I think he could make a decent pop/rock singer/musician but a rapper ... oh god ! Please someone tell him not to do that ! Seriously ? Can someone imagine him as a rapper ? That would be ridiculous.

Someone used my name in vain! I said yes, Joaquin can be a rapper if he so desires. I know he is musically talented but talent has nothing to do with rapping. It's swagger and presence then skills. So if he's got the swagger and presence because he's fallen hard off the wagon then he just needs to gain the skills of mastering cleaver language. That will take work considering his whole "bye" "good" business. He needs the assistance of a real rapper like Dr Dre or Eminem not a poser like P. Diddy.

I voted no, but I have to admit I've never heard him rap. He may have put a fresh spin on rap who knows. I wouldn't use Diddy though, yeah he'll get a hit but is he really doing it for a commercial hit or because he has something profound he wants to share with the world .
