Did Matt Kemp record an album?

In Episode 996, Sam mentioned that five or so years ago he saw a tweet about Matt Kemp “in the studio” to record his first album. But what happened to this tweet? What happened to the album?


Was his Twitter username originally @mattkemp27? This account has been deleted but evidence remains.

And Kemp wasn’t alone:

Fans remembered:


But that’s not the end of the story (or the beginning) because these are just references. The original tweet by @mattkemp27 goes back to at least 11/4/2009. Thankfully, Dodgers fans on niketalk documented it.


Why did he delete his old twitter account? What happened to the album? The world may never know…but it was recorded.
