Apparently, Game wasn't the only hip-hop head who was impressed with the verse that LeBron James dropped over Jay Z's "F**kWithMeYouKnowIGotIt" last summer, which we heard earlier this week after TMZ Sports got their hands on it. TMZ Sports asked Mannie Fresh about the verse shortly after releasing it, and he also said that he was pleasantly surprised with what he heard from LeBron. In fact, he thinks King James is better than a lot of professional MCs.

"LeBron is a lot nicer than a lot of the rappers out right now," he said. "He got a nice little flow. He was cocky with it…I always like that in rappers. He was like, 'Shit, I'm not backing down!'"

The classic producer also said that he wouldn't be opposed to working with LeBron sometime in the near future.

"Who knows?" he said. "Maybe we do this...and I'll be sitting courtside at the NBA Finals!"

Hmmm….We can't tell if he's serious about wanting to work with LeBron or just angling for some free tickets. Either way, we're glad to hear that we weren't the only ones who enjoyed LBJ's raps.
