Thunder star Kevin Durant will appear on veteran NBA player Stephen Jackson's rap album, according to an interview Jackson gave to XXL Magazine.

"Yeah, KD can go, man," Jackson said in the interview. "I respect him for even getting on the track with me, because a lot of athletes are scared to even get on the same song with me ’cause they feel I’m gonna embarrass them. I’m just happy he took the time to do it, and he really killed the verse so a lot of people are gonna be surprised by it."

Jackson, an aspiring rapper, said he has recorded the album after the NBA season ended. The album is set to be released at the end of August or beginning of September. The 34-year-old Jackson split last season between the Bucks and Spurs. He averaged 9.8 points per game.
