When LeBron James isn’t going hard in the paint, he’s rapping in the studio with childhood friend Sian Cotton. It’s no secret LeBron James loves hip-hop.
The Miami Heat star has exhibited his freestyling skills before, but releasing an entire song over Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail banger “FuckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt” is a new journey.
‘Bron and his childhood friend Sian Cotton hit up a recording studio in Ohio last summer and busted out a remix of the Jay-Z club banger “F**kwithmeyouknowIgotit.”
During the song, which LeBron and Cotton titled, “Kingdom” — James raps about docking his yacht off the coast of France, having “money, cribs and whips” … and most importantly owning TWO NBA CHAMPIONSHIP RINGS!
We spoke to Cotton who tells us the two never really planned to record the song — it was a spur of the moment decision made during a gym session.
“We were working out together and LeBron said ‘let’s get in the booth.’ I said ‘I’m going tonight’, so he came to the studio.”
Cotton — an aspiring rapper who just released his new mixtape (featuring his new song “Ancient Mayans”) — adds, “We were just having fun. Bron had jotted some notes down earlier, and he finished his verse in the studio.”
Wonder what Jay Z and Rick Ross think about LeBron’s take on their song? In the meantime, listen to Bron Bron get his rap on up top.
