LeBron James seems to agree with Jay-Z — that no one can stand on the same stage with him for a ‘Verzuz’ — and maybe, just maybe, he feels the same way about himself on a basketball court.
LBJ was definitely feeling good Sunday night … rapping along, line-by-line, to Jay’s “Imaginary Player” while in the middle of what looks like a pretty swanky evening with his wife, Savannah, and friends.
What’s interesting is … the video plays like a public service announcement to all the haters dissing the Lakers for their sub-par season — they’re only 16-18 right now. Check the look on LeBron’s face as he drops lines like, “Y’all rapping ass n***as, y’all funny to me … Selling records, being you, but still you wanna be me.”
As we previously reported … Jay-Z recently shot down any hopes he would do a “Verzuz” battle, boasting there’s no one on his level in hip-hop who even deserves to stand on a stage with him.
It’s no secret LeBron’s a big fan of Jigga — so, you’d expect him to ride with Mr. Carter, but it’s also clear certain Jay tracks are really speaking to the Lakers superstar right now.
BTW, LeBron’s biz partner, Maverick Carter, joined in later, rapping with him to “Hova Song.” Remember, Maverick was kicking it with Jay-Z, Adele and her BF, Rich Paul … who, of course, is LBJ’s agent.
It’s all in the family for LeBron, and looks like he’s leaning on that fam now.
