Had to pleasure of working on my first music project from start to finish with my guy @2chainz “Rap or Go To The League” coming to y’all 3/1. 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. Proud of you homie and the people will be as well when this hits! 🙏🏾✊🏾💪🏾 #ARBron #RaporGoToTheLeague🤷🏾♂️
Often times we see athletes slandered for being too concerned with their brand as they enter the realm of professional sports. The modern day athlete should absolutely ensure they are able to perform at the highest level. However, with so many opportunities to maximize their potential, we cannot belabor them for pursuing every avenue available. They can now simply follow the lead of one LeBron James.
Over recent years it has seemed that not only is James on a quest to solidify his basketball greatness. With his business various business ventures, he is also on a quest to become the first billionaire athlete. Let’s not forget, there have been other NBA legends to jump into the music game as well:

From producing the on-court greatness to wanting to own an NBA franchise when he hangs up the sneakers, the basketball aspect of it all is playing itself out. Now, with his movie and documentary initiatives, and new music endeavors, what else will we see off the court?
And yes LeBron, we recognize the 3/1 release date. Really clever!
