Babel is understood to have always had an interest in music - especially hip-hop and often juggled between his love for music and a career in football.

But with the 34-year-old entering the sunset years of his career on the pitch, he has stepped up on the mic with the hope of making a name for himself in music.

The Sun reports the Dutch football star set up a record label when he was 22 but the game took up most of his time.

The footie-turn rapper has now released an album dubbed "The Autobiography - Chapter 1" where he raps mostly about his career in the round-leather game.
