Alex Ovechkin as a rap star


Alex Ovechkin’s latest musical endeavor became available to the masses this weekend as the video for Sasha Belyi’s song “Champion” surfaced on YouTube. Safe to say, it’s one of those things you just have to see for yourself, even if you don’t understand Russian.

If you’d like to fast forward to Ovechkin rapping a verse, head to the 2:55 mark of the video, when the Capitals left wing is introduced.

According to the good folks over at Russian Machine, here is what Ovechkin says in his verse:

Alumni of Dynamo
Eight on the back.
In the All-Star game all attention is on me.
On the NatTeam since 17
Scored 100 points in a season
Gold Medal in Canada in ‘08
Among the 10 best players of the decade,
Stick in my hands, rap in my headphones,
Saying hello from Washington
Together with Sanya Belyi
For every champion
