NBA icon LeBron James is deep into hip-hop culture. Responding to a question that’s been going around social media about rap’s Mount Rushmore, the four-time MVP gave a glimpse into his favorites list.
LeBron Makes His Mount Rushmore Pick
Spotify’s Rap Caviar account created an incomplete hip-hop Mount Rushmore for the 2010s decade featuring Drake, Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole, and asked fans to fill in the fourth name. Among artists being thrown around like Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and Lil Wayne, LeBron James cast his vote for Atlanta chart-topper Future.
“Who takes the fourth spot on the Mount Rushmore of the 2010s?”
LeBron’s Plan To Make A Rap Album
LBJ is thinking of taking his talents to the rap game. But following the footsteps of Diddy, ‘Bron says don’t worry if he writes rhymes, he’ll write checks.
“My love for music is INSANE!!! I think I’m going to do a album. Oh no I won’t be rapping or anything like that. I’m not crazy, I know what I’m great at, but I tell you one thing I do have. So many friends that can!”
‘Bron Worked On 2 Chainz’s Album
This wouldn’t be LeBron’s first involvement with a hip-hop project. In 2019, the four-time NBA champion did A&R for 2 Chainz‘s Rap Or Go To The League album. The project peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard chart and contained the gold-selling single “Rule The World” featuring Ariana Grande.
It’s been quite the journey to get here. All night studio sessions, reflecting, & opening up on these records or as I call it therapy! This is my each one teach one body of work, I wanna celebrate black excellence! ….. “Rap Or Go To The League” the album A&R by @KingJames 3/1
