Throughout his storied NBA career, LeBron James is often quoting rap lyrics on social media.
Recently, the Los Angeles Lakers star tweeted a Jay-Z lyric after his team clinched a win in Game 6 against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday (April 28) in the NBA playoffs. The lyric was possibly aimed at Grizzlies’ Dillion Brooks who called him “old” after Game 2 in the playoffs.
“Unlike you [lil’ n***a] I’m a grown ass man/Big shoes to fill [n***a] grown ass pants/Probably hustled with your pops, go ask your parents/It’s apparent you’re staring at a legend who/Put a few [lil’ n***as] in their place before/Trying to eat without saying they grace before,” King James wrote on his Twitter page.
The quote is from Jay-Z‘s song “Trouble” from his first post-retirement album, Kingdom Come, in 2006.
Additionally, the four-time NBA champion dissed the Grizzlies in an Instagram post, writing, “If you ever see me fighting in the forest with a Grizzly bear, HELP THE BEAR.”
That line comes from a Mystikal lyric in his 2012 freestyle on Invasion Radio With DJ Green Lantern.
