LeBron James appears to agree with Jay-Z that no one can perform on the same stage as him for a ‘Verzuz,’ and perhaps, just maybe, he feels the same way about himself on the basketball court.
LBJ was clearly having a good time on Sunday night, rapping along to Jay-“Imaginary Z’s Player” line-by-line while enjoying what appears to be a posh evening with his wife, Savannah, and pals.
What’s intriguing is that the video plays like a public service announcement to all the haters who are criticizing the Lakers for their poor season (they’re now 16-18). Check out LeBron’s expression when he says things like, “You’re rapping ass n***as, and you’re hilarious to me… You want to be me despite selling records and being you.
As previously reported, Jay-Z recently quashed any expectations of a “Verzuz” showdown, claiming that no one on his level in hip-hop even deserves to be on the same stage as him.
It’s no secret that LeBron loves Jigga, so you’d expect him to hang out with Mr. Carter, but it’s also evident that specific Jay tracks are truly speaking to the Lakers superstar right now.
Maverick Carter, LeBron’s business partner, later joined in, rapping with him to “Hova Song.” Remember, Maverick was hanging out with Jay-Z, Adele, and her boyfriend, Rich Paul… who is also LBJ’s agent?
It’s all in the family for LeBron, and he appears to be leaning on his family right now.
