Jadakiss, Cool Kids and More Lure LeBron With ‘I Am the Man’
Sports fans across the world are continuing to guess and theorize where superstar basketball player LeBron James plans to sign and play next year. While waiting for the big man’s answer, the contending cities and their various artists have created song and dance campaigns to help sway the athlete. One of the biggest documents of the free agent period is a Vitamin Water-commissioned mixtape that came out last month and features a track called ‘I Am the Man’ with MCs from New York, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami and Chicago. New York’s Jadakiss leads the plea for King James on the national cut, which has been steadily growing in popularity during the last week.
“Come to the city where the ball drops on New Year,” he raps. “You win one chip it’s like you won two here/ You love playing in the Garden, you run through there/ Just picture LeBron in the orange and blue gear … Frankly, I know you’re debating/I just want to let you know, you got NYC just waiting … “
Other rappers on ‘I Am the Man’ include Chip Da Ripper (Cleveland), the Cool Kids‘ Mikey Rocks (Chicago), Uncle Murda (New York), Brisco (Miami) and Nipsey Hussle (Los Angeles). James’ final decision is days away but you can give the track a spin already. A free download is available here.
