Joaquin Phoenix's Rap Career is Serious, Says Rep

Joaquin Phoenix‘s rep Susan Patricola says the actor’s career in rap/hip-hop is not a well-crafted hoax but very real.

“The transition from one career to another is never seamless. It should come as no surprise to anyone that Joaquin came from a musical family, in addition to winning a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Johnny Cash,” Patricola wrote in an e-mail to MTV. “He intends on exploring his musical interests despite speculative, negative or positive reactions.”

EW claims this is all one big prank on the media, with his publicist in on the joke too.

DO YOU THINK Joaquin will live out his rap-star dreams?
