LeBron James raps over Jay-Z & Kanye West beat

Published Add your comment

Miami Heat superstar LeBron James has tried his hand at rapping on two videos released on his KingJames Instagram account.

The four-time MVP is without doubt the greatest NBA player currently playing the game, but does he fancy himself as a hip-hop star as well?

Rapping over the beat from Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Paris" from their Watch the Throne album, James does what any great rapper does -  he reels off a series of "shout-outs" to the likes of "the Four Horseman" and the "Fab Five". No, we're not sure who those are either.

On the second video he gets stuck in - and to these untrained ears he doesn't sound too bad. The beat is obviously an instant classic, taken from one of the most popular albums of 2011. But the Heat forward gives it a decent attempt. And I guess if you're LeBron James you can do just about anything you want.

You can listen to the two clips for yourself below...
