We thought we’d come so far past this trend, but we were dead wrong. The trend of rapping athletes has been a thorn in the side of hip-hop since Shaq started using Bugs Bunny catchphrases for song titles. Fast forward twenty years and we’re back at one with LeBron James dropping a “freestyle” over Kanye West and Jay-Z‘s hit “N***as In Paris.” As you would expect, LeBron’s talents are better suited for sports rather than music. However, we’ll give him a high-five for effort.
As we mentioned earlier, LeBron isn’t the first and most certainly won’t be the last athlete to drop some struggle couplets. The 2013 NBA Finals MVP inspired us to take a trip down memory lane and dig up some of the oldest and worse songs ever performed by athletes. Peep this.
