Report: LeBron James and Kevin Durant collaborated on song

1 Comment

LeBron James has been excellent in the NBA Finals. Kevin Durant has been even better.

Imagine what they could do together.

A select few don’t have to imagine – at least when it comes to the basketball stars’ music.

LeBron and Durant worked out together during the 2011 lockout. Between gym time, they reportedly recorded a hip-hop track together.

Chris Haynes of ESPN:

Both players are music junkies, and in between workouts they decided to kill some time by writing their own lyrics and heading to the booth, sources told ESPN.

One person who has heard the song says he recalls Durant rapping the first verse, James hopping on for the second and then Durant finishing it off.

The song’s title and theme are unknown, as are its whereabouts. Durant, who produces beats in his spare time, is believed to have provided the instrumentals.

“I heard the track years ago during post production for ‘Thunderstruck,’” said agent Eric Goodwin, who executive produced the film and once represented both Durant and James. “It was very good. I suggested submitting it to Warner Brothers for the movie soundtrack, but KD wanted to keep it private.”

Move over, “SMiLE.”
