Flau’jae Johnson is rocking on the court and off.

The freshman LSU guard helped the Tigers to their first national title earlier this month. She also is a talented rapper who has appeared twice on “America’s Got Talent.” And after LSU’s national championship run, she’s getting attention for all of her talents.

Lil Wayne wants to work with the rapper on an upcoming track, he said on “The Bird and Taurasi Show” during the Final Four.

And he’s not the only one. On Monday, three-time Grammy winner Wyclef Jean tweeted a video of Johnson rapping and indicated that he wants to work with Johnson as well.

“Ready or not here she comes from the national championship to the big stage,” he wrote. “Big up Flau’jae let me know when you ready to lock in! Lets go!”

DJ Khaled also wants to work with the rising star. Johnson posted a photo of herself on Instagram with Khaled last week, saying in the caption that a collaboration is “coming soon.”

She expressed her excitement at the opportunities to work with these artists again Monday, writing: “Lil Wayne, Dj Khaled, Wyclef Jean wanna work w me ??!! Like these are LEGENDS this is not light !!!”
