Dwayne Johnson is known for a lot of things — a famed wrestler, a film producer, a tequila maker, and the star of Disney’s newest film Jungle Cruise. He was also the voice of the demigod Maui in the 2016 film Moana, loves to show off the amazing food that eats to fuel him through his days, and inspires his followers with his intense workouts that keep him in great shape.

As if that isn’t enough, Johnson is also actively expanding his singing career. The wrestler/actor/successful tequila business owner did do some singing in Moana — who doesn’t get “You’re Welcome” stuck in their head — and even some rapping that the film’s songwriter Lin Manuel Miranda is known for. Johnson has seemingly taken the experience he has from Moana and is turning into professional rapping on a new album called “Face Off” from Tech N9ne.
