The 2017 NBA Finals have been highlighted by an on-court battle between LeBron James and Kevin Durant.
But long before they squared up against each other in their quest for glory, they both worked together on a hip-hop song.
The track has not been released and its title and theme are unknown. According to ESPN, Durant was visiting James in Ohio when they decided to record a song together for fun. Durant reportedly rapped the first verse before James took the second and then Durant closed it out.
Durant reportedly provided the instrumentals and it was almost included in the film “Thunderstruck.”
I heard the track years ago during post production for ‘Thunderstruck,’” agent Eric Goodwin told ESPN. “It was very good. I suggested submitting it to Warner Brothers for the movie soundtrack, but KD wanted to keep it private.”
Haynes reports that he asked both James and Durant about the track.
When approached about its existence, James and Durant, to a moderate extent, confirmed that there is such a track before bursting out into laughter without further comment.
I’d literally give anything to hear the song right now! Who do you think was the better rapper on the song?
