The rapper gives a nod to the Los Angeles Lakers star.
“King James” is, of course, titled after sports great LeBron James, and the track is produced by another icon, Scott Storch. “We started working on this record late last year. I wanted to create an anthem about having a winning type of attitude called ‘King James.’ When we got it done we figured we would release it around All-Star weekend, but then Kobe passed away and it didn’t feel right to drop this,” said R-Mean. “So we figured we’ll release during playoffs, but then Covid canceled the entire NBA season! But now that the NBA is back and the Lakers are looking great in the post-season, I felt like it actually worked out even better. Cuz now I get to use this record as a follow up to my album with Berner to keep the momentum going.”
