The record features Kanye rapping, “Nike treating employees just like slaves. Gave LeBron a billie [billion dollars] not to run away.”
Nike signed James to a lifetime contract reportedly worth over $500 million. The 4-time NBA MVP commented about Kanye’s “Facts” in a recent interview saying, “It’s just, it’s family when you talk about Nike, and I’m always on their side no matter what the situation is.”
Kanye has now responded to the chatter he dissed James on his latest song. He tweeted, “The media tried to make it seem like I was downplaying LeBron on my song FACTS which I would never do, LeBron is fam bottom line.”
