Taking sloppy seconds is one thing, but getting it announced on wax (and on the accompanying music video) is another—especially if you're a star athlete like Lebron James. On "Popular Demand (Popeyes)," by our former cover subjects The Clipse, Pusha T discusses a Madonna-looking groupie who's allegedly fucking LeBron...after Pusha already smashed "a long time ago" on a balcony in Miami's Delano Hotel. Like that Bron-Bron? Shots fired!

Whether there's any truth to this story or it's just another rapper tall tale, Pusha's dis of LeBron is hilarious and awesome. Athletes and MCs are so much on that LeBron-Jigga BFF tip these days that it's no longer notable to hear a ballplayer's name in a rhyme. But when an athlete gets dissed on a song? Yup, hilarious and awesome. Read on for our favorite rap sonnings of pro athletes...

jayzmarbury

ATHLETE DISSED: Stephon Marbury
BY: Jay-Z on "La, La, La (Excuse Me Miss Again)"

LYRICS: "Please excuse yourself, you're very sick/Don't confuse me with Marbury out this bitch/Run up on me at the light, you could lose your life"
COMPLEX SAYS: Hov was having problems with Fat Joe at the time, so he took a jab at Crack's best bud on the Knicks, who was robbed in the summer of 2000 while sitting in a car in Manhattan. This year, Marbury finally responded to Jay's dis by taking off his shirt, slathering on baby powder, and singing "My Prerogative" while dancing in the mirror. Nice one, Steph!

lilwayneobannon

ATHLETES DISSED: Ed and Charles O'Bannon
BY: Lil Wayne on "Cannon Freestyle"

LYRICS "Listen close I got duct tape and rope/ I'll leave you missin' like the fuckin' O'Bannons."
COMPLEX SAYS: Wayne proved his sports pedigree by referencing the O'Bannon brothers, who were awesome at UCLA but sucked in the NBA. Believe it or not, the O'Bannons responded. "Come see me on the court, lil' fella...I will dunk on you!" LOLz.

ATHLETE DISSED: Ron Mercer
BY: J. Cole on "Grown Simba (Warm Up)"

COMPLEX SAYS: Really, though: What happened to Ron Mercer?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
budden2

ATHLETES DISSED: Grant Hill, Kurt Thomas, Eddy Curry, Tyus Edney
BY: Joe Budden on "NBA Freestyle"

LYRICS: "End up like Grant Hill on the bench in your street clothes/Talk about he real, how he quick with a glock/But like Kurt Thomas he ain't good for shit on the block"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BY: Joe Budden on "6 Minutes of Death Freestyle"

LYRICS: "For once trust me, you don't want to start problems/The pound will make you Eddy Curry with a heart problem"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BY: Joe Budden on "Pump It Up Remix"

LYRICS: "Try and wet me/You dudes will never make it/Y'all are Tyus Edneys"
COMPLEX SAYS: These NBA snaps are dope like "Birdman" Andersen's drawer stash. See, it ain't that hard.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
jayzpervis

ATHLETE DISSED: Pervis Ellison
BY: Jay-Z on "Pump It Up Remix"

LYRICS: "Matter fact, you a Harold Miner, J.R. Rider washed up on marijuana/Even worse you a Pervis Ellis', you worthless fella/You ain't no athlete, you Shawn Bradley"
COMPLEX SAYS: Jay sonned a bunch of NBA ballers on the track, but the most notable (and obscure) is "Never Nervous" Pervis Ellison (not Ellis), the no. 1 overall draft pick in 1989. Career PPG? 9.5. Yeah, pretty worthless.

nasoj

ATHLETES DISSED: O.J. Simpson, Kobe Bryant
BY: Nas on "Coon Picnic (These Are Our Heroes)"

LYRICS: "Keep gettin' accused for abusing white pussy/From O.J. to Kobe, let's call him Toby/First he played his life cool just like Michael..."
COMPLEX SAYS: The verse actually continues into a total ethering of Mamba, but we just isolated the O.J. part so we could post the awesome picture above.

BY: 2Pac - "Against All Odds"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
jimjones

ATHLETE DISSED: Steve Francis
BY: Jim Jones on "Come Home With Me"

LYRICS: "Come on home with me these are the facts/Steve Francis and Latifah got jacked"
COMPLEX SAYS: This isn't much of a dis, but it's notable because not many people outside of Harlem knew that Stevie Franchise got robbed at a barbershop uptown in 2000. Ghetto CNN strikes again!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
tribetestaverde

ATHLETES DISSED: Vinny Testaverde
BY: Phife on "The Chase, Pt. 2"

LYRICS: "Sit back and learn, come now watch the birdie/Your styles are incomplete, same as Vinny Testaverde"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
fatjoeroyjones

ATHLETE DISSED: Roy Jones Jr.
BY:Fat Joe on "New York"

WHY WE CO-SIGN: "True story, I'm bringing the team back/Even Roy Jones was forced to lean back"
COMPLEX SAYS: Word to the wise: Dissing NBA players is cool because we all know they can't fight. But dissing a boxer? Careful, son. Fat Joe learned, so should you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
resize625shaq

ATHLETES DISSED: Christian Laettner, Alonzo Mourning
BY: Shaq on "What's Up Doc"

WHY WE CO-SIGN: "Now who's the first pick? Me, word is born and/Not a Christian Laettner, not Alonzo Mourning"
COMPLEX SAYS: Not nearly as effective as the "ass taste" freestyle, but still funny.
