​Everyone knows and loves Erling Haaland the talented footballer, but did you know that Erling Braut Haaland was a rapper in 2016 and his rap name was 'Flow Kingz?'


Football's hottest property right now, Haaland has taken the world by storm. His two-goal heroics that helped his club ​Borussia Dortmund to a 2-1 victory over PSG in the ​Champions League last week is another chapter in an outstanding season for the Norwegian.


This was Haaland’s 11th goal for Dortmund in just his seventh appearance. His stats this season are nothing short of ridiculous. Thirty-nine goals, six hat-tricks, ten goals in seven Champions League games for Red Bull Salzburg, his former club, and Dortmund. The guy is a phenomenon.


But apart from his prowess on the football field, the 19-year-old has a bunch of extra-curriculars that will make anyone's head spin.


​Haaland holds the world record for the longest standing jump for five-year-olds. His 1.63m record, recorded on 22 January, 2006, still stands today.


He was also a rapper who went by the name 'Flow Kingz' back in Norway, and has multiple ​YouTube videos to his credit.



“You know he raps, right?” Sondre Norheim,​ a former teammate said last year. “There are videos on YouTube.”


From ​scoring nine goals at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in May 2019 to channeling his inner Usain Bolt by ​clocking a neat sprint of 60 metres in 6.64 seconds, there's not much Haaland hasn't done. And he's only just getting started.


It's amazing, innit?
