No, you’re eyes are not deceiving you. LeBron James is dropping mixtapes now. Actually, Champions is his first such endeavor and, don’t worry, LBJ isn’t actually rhyming. What he did was “called up a couple friends” and got a wide range of talent to submit fresh material for the project.
With the tracks placed together by Eighty81’s Meel, the final product plays surprisingly well and features tunes from the likes Pac Div, Pusha T, Dee Goodz, Skotch Davis, tabi, Chase, Bei, Fly U…shit, they really got every good “Internet rapper” who really deserves a wider look and ‘Bron threw’em the oop, putting them on center stage. Not a bad play at all.
Salute: LeBron James
