LeBron James has a new teammate … 2 CHAINZ!!! ‘Cause the Lakers superstar just announced his first music project starring the “It’s A Vibe” rapper.
The King is takin’ his first shot at being an A&R exec … teaming up with the Georgia rapper for, “Rap Or Go To The League,” a 14-track album coming out March 1.
LBJ announced the collab with a video of the duo in the studio … choppin’ it up about things like the tracklist, features and release plans — all the things a music exec has to deal with.
“Can’t wait for y’all to hear the continues evolution of his profound skills from his mind to the booth to the records itself,” Bron says, “Proud of you homie and the people will be as well when this hits!”
2 Chainz added … “It’s gonna be shocking for people to know how much input you had on (the project.)”
No word on whether Bron actually got in the booth to spit some bars … but we know he’s fully capable of doing so.
By the way, 2 Chainz was recently complaining that he got snubbed from the NBA All-Star Weekend celebrity game … guessing the league won’t overlook him next year if he’s biz partners with LeBron?!
Like any good secret agent, Henry Golding isn’t spilling the beans on his next move … which, one could speculate, makes him the perfect choice to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.
We got the “Crazy Rich Asians” star at LAX, where we asked him about his chances to play 007 in the 26th Bond film. As if his ‘CRA’ success wasn’t enough, the buzz is Henry is on a short list of stars being considered to play the ultimate spy.
When we brought it up … Henry flashed a huge grin, and then went into coy mode.
Cool moment at the Pro Bowl — two NFL stars who battled cancer and WON bonded in Orlando this week … which makes this pic of Jim Kelly and James Conner inspiring as hell.
Obviously, Conner made the Pro Bowl after balling out with the Pittsburgh Steelers this year — and Kelly is there as an assistant for the AFC squad.
Conner’s story is pretty amazing — he was diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2015 after a stellar junior year at Pitt. He underwent months of chemotherapy and was declared cancer-free in 2016.
58-year-old Kelly was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in his jaw in 2013 and has undergone several major surgeries since … including a major reconstructive procedure in 2018.
So, when they spotted each other on the sidelines of the Pro Bowl practice in Orlando on Thursday, they had an instant connection.
“These two know the game of football,” Jim’s wife, Jill Kelly, wrote … “And they know cancer. Superstars and survivors…NEVER GIVE UP!”
Kelly, Conner and the rest of the AFC will take on the NFC on Sunday — and ya better be rooting extra hard for these guys!
We got the super conservative actor Friday night in WeHo at Dan Tana’s, and we thought he was going to double down on his comments that AOC was so powerful she cannot be ignored … and, he said, “Ignore her at your peril.”
Yet, he told our photog how impressive he thinks she is … a bartender becoming a leader in Congress has to be admired.
He also thinks AOC has struck a cord with young people, and she could become the Pied Piper of her generation in terms of mobilizing the masses.
Eric Deckerthrew in the towel on his NFL career, but it looks like he hasn’t lost a step in retirement … because Jessie James Decker had to throw a towel over her husband’s manhood while showing off his toned bod in a super revealing photo.
It seems Eric didn’t just hang up his cleats when he retired from pro football back in August, he apparently hung up ALL his clothes … and it’s clear Jessie is totally on board!
Jessie shared Eric’s nude on her Instagram Monday with a simple caption, “#retirement.”
Eric called it quits on his NFL career in training camp after playing 8 seasons with the Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Tennessee Titans, but it looks like he’s still physically ready to play on Sundays.
LeBron James just settled the GOAT debate, at least the way he sees it … claiming the crown for himself thanks to the Cavaliers win against the Golden State Warriors for the 2016 NBA Championship.
James was chatting with a couple buddies on “More Than An Athlete” Sunday when the GS series came up. Without hesitation, LeBron says he knew winning that series made him the greatest player of all time.
He’s already got the right beard, and on Christmas Eve … James Harden went full Santa Claus and provided presents for families who could use an assist.
The NBA superstar and his charity foundation partnered with a Target in Pearland, Texas Monday and hooked up 70 Houston area kids and their families with gift cards … and shut down the store for a personal shopping spree!
We’re told each card had a couple hundred bucks on it, and the best part … the kids had no idea they were in for this treat.
The Christmas karma must have been good for Harden too … because, on Christmas Day, he dropped 41 points on Oklahoma City to lead his Rockets to a W.
LeBron James not getting fined for his “Jewish Money” post was the right call … so says NBA agent Daniel Hazan who is also Jewish.
We got the super agent out Monday night in NYC and had to ask him about LeBron’s XMAS Eve Instagram post that sparked backlash. ICYMI … LeBron posted a pic on IG with the caption “getting that Jewish money” which he THOUGHT was a compliment to Jews. It’s not, so LeBron apologized.
Hazan — the CEO and founder of Hazan Sports Management — dropped a little knowledge on us about the term and why it’s seeded with anti-Semitism. Hazan also explains what he thinks LeBron was trying to convey with the message. Bottom line … LeBron shot and missed with his post but Hazan does give LeBron credit for one thing.
LeBron James busted out a big “Sleecha” to Jewish people on Sunday — after posting a photo on Instagram with the caption, “Getting that Jewish money.”
Long story short, LeBron says he thought it was a “compliment” to Jews.
James was actually quoting a lyric from the 21 Savage rap song “ASMR” — but there was a backlash online from people who felt someone as famous and powerful as LeBron shouldn’t be pushing old Anti-Semitic stereotypes.
“Apologies, for sure, if I offended anyone,” James told ESPN … “That’s not why I chose to share that lyric. I always [post lyrics]. That’s what I do. I ride in my car, I listen to great music, and that was the byproduct of it.”
“So, I actually thought it was a compliment, and obviously it wasn’t through the lens of a lot of people. My apologies. It definitely was not the intent, obviously, to hurt anybody.”
Despite LeBron’s intent, there have been hundreds of books and articles written over the years about why the “Jews and Money” stereotype is a dangerous one.
Quite simply, it’s been used a rallying cry to fuel anti-Semitism for hundreds of years.
As far as the NBA is involved, ESPN reports he will not be fined for the posting the lyrics.
