Memphis Depay Aims Dig At Manchester United's Glazer Family In New Rap Track
The Dutchman spent one-and-a-half seasons at United after signing from PSV Eindhoven and inheriting the coveted No.7 shirt in 2015.
However, he was unable to continue his impressive goalscoring form in England and signed for French side Lyon in 2017 after an underwhelming stint in English football.
That same year, he released a rap freestyle called "LA Vibes" with Ajax winger Quincy Promes in the video.
He has since combined his football exploits with a hip-hop career that has seen a number of tracks and videos released.
His most recent, titled 'Big Fish', features a put-down of the Glazer family. The Netherlands international raps,"I've been planning to make some big statements. I need money like the Glazers."

United's American owners have proved immensely popular with the club's fans in their tenure, with Memphis referring to many feeling that the club have taken more money than they have invested in the Old Trafford outfit.
The song is featured on Memphis' first EP, which dropped last week. 'Heavy Stepper', which is available on streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music, has nine songs in total.
Unsurprisingly, there are plenty of football references in Memphis' lyrics.
In 2018, he celebrated five million followers on Instagram by releasing a "5 mill" freestyle that saw him in Paris, shouting out Lionel Messi and rapping about the Netherlands vying to get to the Nations League final.
Still only 26, Memphis wants to do music full-time when he retires and has ambitions to perform live on stage.
"I've many dreams," he said on an Instagram Live with BR Football back in April.
"Maybe I'll get to experience them one day. If I can imagine it, it means I can do it.
"I would need artists who can bring the energy of the crowd. I need a producer. I can't produce myself in a studio."
