LeBron James has chimed in on the recent back-and-forth between Drake and Kendrick Lamar

On Saturday, King James hopped on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, to let fans know what he thought about Drake’s alleged diss track that leaked online earlier in the day. According to the four-time NBA champion, he’s here for the competition between two “heavyweights.”

“Nothing like 2 heavyweights doing What They Do Best! For the love off of the sport,” James tweeted.

The future NBA Hall of Famer has been a close friend of Drake over the years, but LeBron has also shown to be a fan of Lamar by sharing clips of himself rapping along to the pgLang rapper’s music.

Lamar recently took a jab at Drake and J. Cole on “Like That” on Metro Boomin and Future’s We Don’t Trust You, which was released last month. On the track, K. Dot denounced all the chatter surrounding the “Big 3.” 

“Think I won't drop the location? I still got PTSD"

"Motherfuck the big three, n***a, it's just big me,” Lamar rapped on the track.

On April 13, Drake’s diss track titled “Push Ups (Drop & Give Me 50),” leaked online, and the 6 God had bars lined up for Lamar, Metro Boomin, The Weeknd, Rick Ross, and more.

“I could never be nobody number-one fan/Your first number one, I had to put it in your hand/You pussies can't get booked outside America for nan'/I'm out in Tokyo because I'm big in Japan/I'm the hitmaker y'all depend on/Backstage, in my city, it was friend zone/You won't ever take no chain off of us,” Drake rapped.
